The Trinidad Civic Club, founded in 1913, is a member of the California Federation of Women's Clubs and the General Federation of Women's Clubs, International. This non-profit organization consists of approximately forty members dedicated to volunteerism and community service.

We also provide books to winners of the Student of the Month programs at Trinidad and Big Lagoon Schools.
