And P.E.O. Adds to YOU!
You Add to P.E.O. is a fun initiative within the P.E.O. Sisterhood with three components: You Add to P.E.O.
P.E.O. Adds to YOU Think about what P.E.O. adds to your life. It could be the close friendships you’ve developed and the loving concern you feel from your sisters. Perhaps it is the confidence in taking on a leadership role within your local chapter or your state, provincial or district chapter knowing you have the support of your sisters, who want to see you succeed and flourish. It may be the good feeling you get from knowing you’re helping women pursue their goals of higher education and in doing so changing their lives, their family’s lives and our communities. Maybe you came to the Sisterhood as a recipient of a grant, loan or scholarship and the financial and emotional support assisted you in achieving your goals.
Each member shares her talents, strengths and gifts with the Sisterhood to help further our mission—either within the local chapter or through our philanthropic impact. The loving concern among our members makes us a true sisterhood. Our organization is stronger and more vibrant because of each individual member.
“Encouragement and support when I stepped outside my box. I did things through P.E.O. that I never would have imagined I could have done. I could not have done it without the support of my sisters. Lasting friendships and common interests, It has been a wonderful journey.”
“As a 57-year member of P.E.O., the thing I enjoy the most is the bond of sisterly
love between all of our members. The grand idea of helping women achieve their life goals through education is just about as good as it gets.”
“P.E.O. brought a sense of purpose to my life along with new friends.
I love everything about P.E.O. I have enjoyed each position I have taken and the committees I have been on. But hands down it is raising the money for projects and helping a woman reach her goals.” Caren Browne, CI, Twin Falls, Idaho
