About

Our Vision Women and girls have the resources and opportunities to reach their full potential and live their dreams.

Our Mission Soroptimist is a global volunteer organization that provides women and girls with access to the education and training they need to achieve economic empowerment.

We all have unique gifts to share with the communities that need them most. By empowering women and girls through access to education and training, the lives of individuals, families, and whole communities can be improved.

  • Supported 40 Girls through Dream It, Be It for over 2 years 

Additionally, we have allocated $7,500 in Live Your Dream Awards for distribution in the Spring of 2022 and $500 to support our third Dream It, Be It Program from funds raised in the 2020-2021 Club Year.  

Ways You Can Help

Soroptimist’s Live Your Dream Awards program is a unique education award for women who provide the primary financial support for their families. The Live Your Dream Awards give women the resources they need to improve their education, skills and employment prospects.

Why We Do It
Education is the pathway to economically empowering women and girls.
Dream It, Be It: Career Support for Girls gives girls the tools they need to achieve their education and career goals, empowering them to break cycles of poverty, violence, and abuse.
 
Our Impact
Soroptimist launched the Dream It, Be It curriculum in 2015. Since then, more than 84,000 girls around the world have participated.
