Founded in 1931, the American Women’s Club of Berlin (AWC Berlin) is a social network with a charitable calling. The AWC Berlin provides a forum for women to share information and experiences, to meet new friends and engage in inspiring and fun activities, all while helping and empowering others along the way.
After a period in hiatus, we have re-LAUNCHED the Club in June 2015. Many organizations in Berlin offer social activities and cultural exchanges, but the AWC Berlin exists for women of all nationalities who embody or appreciate the “American Spirit” – the spirit of giving, the can-do attitude, the desire to learn and grow, and the drive to make a difference – while still having a lot of fun! We believe in the empowerment of women and our activities and causes reflect this purpose. We believe in developing our youth into responsible and caring global citizens and have programs to engage our members’ children. Lastly, we discover our host city together through a range of different activities and programs to appreciate the special relationship that Berlin has with Americans.
AWC Berlin is a proud founding member of FAWCO (www.fawco.org), an international network of independent volunteer clubs and associations with a total membership of around 12,000 in nearly 35 countries. FAWCO is active as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) with special consultative status to the UN Economic and Social Council.
We are non-profit and non-political. Whether you are new to the Berlin area or a long time resident looking to reconnect with your American culture, we invite you to join our vibrant community! Join Us!
