Modern Literacy & Education Programs

well-behaved women rarely make history

The Woman’s Club of Red Bank began as a social club and transitioned into more of a literary society. The “Founding Mothers” of the Woman’s Club of Red Bank purchased the clubhouse in 1921 and maintained it as a place where they could teach women and girls how to read.

Today “modern literacy” is still part of the club’s mission. We invite individuals (all are welcome) and businesses to get involved in our Literacy Committee and events in – anyway they can by volunteering time or goods, donations, or sponsorship to support our education and modern literacy projects.

Modern Literacy: Modern literacy is our term for the programs, initiatives, fundraising, scholarships, and events to share new ways of thinking, concepts, and education.

Some of our members share their professional expertise with financial literacy and healthcare 101 workshops and mini-seminars. We have a traditional book club for purely social reasons.
