The Focus of Our Efforts

Dream It Be It_0.jpg

DREAM IT BE IT

helps girls grow up to be strong, successful, happy adults. The program provides girls with access to professional role models, career education and the resources to live their dreams. We host, annually, with other local Soroptimist clubs, a day-long conference for secondary school-age girls, where they will learn about career opportunities, setting and achieving goals, and overcoming obstacles to success.

LIVE YOUR DREAM AWARD

The Live Your Dream Awards program is Soroptimist's major project. Through the program, clubs in 19 countries and territories assist women who provide the primary source of financial support for their families by giving them the resources they need to improve their education, skills, and employment prospects. Each year, more than $1.7 million is disbursed through cash awards at various levels of the organization. Recipients of these awards—many of whom have overcome enormous obstacles including poverty, domestic violence, and drug and alcohol abuse—may use the awards to offset any costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education, such as books, childcare and transportation.
