The Tennessee Yellow DOT Program is designed to provide first responders with an individual’s medical information in the event of an emergency on Tennessee’s roadways. The information can mean the difference between life and death in the “Golden Hour” immediately following a serious incident. Clarksville Women's Club is an official designated registration site for the Yellow DOT Program. Packets can be found at the clubhouse with complete instructions needed for submission to the TN Department of Transportation. A photograph of the enrollee is required for this program.

In Epsilon Sigma Omicron (ESO)
Epsilon Sigma Omicron (ESO) is an honorary educational society open to all per-capita paying GFWC federated club members. Over 60 years ago, the ESO program became a permanent part of the GFWC Education Department. Through ESO, clubwomen are given direction in planned reading for self-enrichment and personal growth. Many GFWC clubwomen have profited from this unique self-improvement program, seen as vital by the members it directly benefits. ESO provides clubwomen with a structured reading program that is educational and stimulates a desire for self-improvement. ESO goals include: Encouraging clubwomen’s pursuit of higher education Creating an additional means to unite women in volunteerism Developing a support network for women returning to school Improving current and develop new study skills Stimulating systematic home reading and study with minimal supervision Encouraging the establishment of home libraries and greater use of public libraries Encouraging the formation of reading/study/discussion groups Members can participate in ESO as part of a reading group or on their own. The program provides membership, awards and certificates, pins, reading lists, and a framework in which to pursue continued self-improvement through reading. Many clubs combine club programming with ESO related activities, such as reading awareness and book promotion.
