The American Women’s Club promotes friendship, social connections, and unity among international women. Our club builds good relations with Koreans through cultural, educational and recreational activities. We support local Korean and American communities through charitable contributions.


Who We Are

We are a diverse group of women of all nationalities. We are short-term and long-term residents in Korea. Our members have traveled to Korea for work, education, or with family.  The AWC is run by a volunteer board of women. Our members often recommend restaurants, outings, and resources.

We would love to hear from you.
