We have established our first educational partnership with Tucson Regional Education Collaborative (TREC) – an organization at the University of Arizona’s College of Education. We look forward to many more opportunities to be valuable partners to local organizations. We are stronger together!
More about TREC
TREC is working to support the professional development of teachers in the Tucson region. Over the summer, we helped TREC to write a grant to the Community Foundation of S. Arizona to support activities that had been suspended because of the pandemic. We are serving on their fundraising committee and attending their semi-annual forums that foster communication with the teaching community.
We have chosen TREC for a special grant of $5,000 to support their Teacher Leaders. Please become a community member https://mightynetworks.com/find and searching for “Tucson teacher trading post”. Tucson Branch is funding $5,000 to fulfill wish lists between now and December 15, 2020. If you are an educator and have a need for items such as art supplies, science equipment, etc. which cost $100 or less, join the community and post your Amazon Wish List.
If you are an educational organization and are interested in partnering with us, please contact AAUWTucsonPresident@gmail.com.
