Welcome to
Soroptimist International Connecticut Shoreline

We're chartering a new Soroptimist club on the shoreline area of CT!
Are you interested??

Please read our news release about our new club!

Our mission is to improve the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment in local communities and throughout the world. We are a global volunteer organization. As an international volunteer service organization, we invite you to consider becoming a Soroptimist (which means "best for women") and join thousands of business and community-minded women worldwide who are contributing their time, talent and treasure to make a material difference in the lives of other women.

To find out more about Soroptimist or to learn about membership in our new Shoreline club, please contact Beth Peterson.

Live Your Dream Award
The Soroptimist Live Your Dream Award 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.

Our Shoreline club is awarding a first place winner a cash award of $1,000! Applications are now being received until January (national deadline closed on November 15, 2018).
