Soroptimist International of Greater Santa Clarita Valley and Santa Clarita Valley, global organizations for women, has announced that together they have created a series of workshops to support their 2017 goal for “Dream It, Be It: Career Support for Girls”.
Members of both local clubs of Soroptimist International are hosting a series of workshops for girls ages 14 to 18 called “Dream It, Be It: Career Support for Girls”. The program will begin February 25, 2017 and each week thereafter up to March 28, 2017 at the Spotlight Center.
Similar programs are being conducted by Soroptimist clubs all over the Americas, and beyond, based upon a curriculum founded by the international federation to promote education and empowerment for girls. Topics include career investigation, goal setting, stress management, and more… with the main theme of learning to find and realize dreams.
Soroptimist International of Santa Clarita Valley holds well-recognized events in the community such as “Bras for a Cause” and “Gentlemen for a Cause” (www.siscv.org) while Soroptimist International of Greater Santa Clarita Valley holds The Wine Affair – “Sip, Stroll and Savor the Sounds!” and an annual runway show (www.sigscv.org).
Soroptimist International is an international volunteer service organization founded in 1921 for business and professional women of all ages, cultures and ethnic groups and headquartered in Philadelphia, Pa. Soroptimist (Soroptimist.org) improves the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment. Soroptimist Dream Programs ensure women and girls have access to the education and training they need to reach their full potential and live their dreams. This includes the Live Your Dream: Education and Training Awards for Women, which provides cash grants for head-of-household women seeking to improve their lives with the help of education or training. About $30 million has been disbursed to tens of thousands of women since the program began in 1972. Dream It, Be It: Career Support for Girls provides girls with tangible strategies to accomplish their career goals. A 501(c)(3) organization that relies on charitable donations to support its programs, Soroptimist also powers LiveYourDream.org—an online community that offers on- and offline volunteer opportunities in support of women and girls.
