Awards, Programs & Grants...

Live Your Dream Awards:

The Soroptimist Live Your Dream Awards (formerly the Women’s Opportunity Awards) assists women who provide the primary source of financial support for their families, the opportunity to achieve their career goals by giving them the resources they need to improve their education, skills and employment prospects.
In addition to providing the primary financial support for their families, eligible applicants must be enrolled in, or have been accepted to, a vocational/skills training program or an undergraduate degree program and must demonstrate financial need.
Please click HERE to learn more about to the Live Your Dream Award.

The program begins at the local Soroptimist club level where the amount of the award is determined by each individual club. Each club winner is then forwarded for judging on the Region level where one winner is chosen to receive a first place award of $5,000, which is funded by Soroptimist International of the Americas (SIA). The first place region winner is then sent to SIA to compete for one of three $10,000 finalist awards.

Dream It, Be It

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.

What We Do
Although all girls face barriers because of their gender, we prioritize working with girls who have additional obstacles including poverty, unstable home lives, living in foster care, or teen motherhood. Soroptimist clubs 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.

Why We Do It
Far too many girls face barriers on the pathway to achieving their dreams. Obstacles such as poverty, teen dating violence, and teen pregnancy can get in the way of a girl's ability to make her dreams a reality. Dream It, Be It equips girls to overcome their obstacles, set goals, and head towards success.
