Awards and Programs
Live Your Dream
The Soroptimist Live Your Dream Award assists women who provide the primary source of financial support for their families by giving them some of the resources they need to improve their education, skills and employment prospects. Click here to start the application process.
Each year, Soroptimist International clubs award more than 1,200 women, many of whom have overcome enormous obstacles including poverty, domestic violence and/or drug and alcohol abuse. Live Your Dream Awards recipients may use the cash award to offset any costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education, such as books, childcare, tuition and transportation.
Dream It, Be It
Dream It, Be It: Career Support for Girls is intended to help girls grow up to be strong, successful, happy adults.
Dream It, Be It supports girls entering high school who face obstacles to their future success. It provides girls with access to professional role models, career education and the resources to live their dreams. We work in partnership with girls in small groups or a conference setting to provide them with the information and resources they want and need to be successful. The topics covered include career opportunities, setting and achieving goals, overcoming obstacles to success and moving forward after setbacks or failures.
