Soroptimists participate in Soroptimist International of the Americas programs including our signature DREAM programs: the Soroptimist Live Your Dream Award and Dream It - Be It Career Support for Girls. We support the Soroptimist Workplace Campaign to End Domestic Violence and Soroptimists STOP Trafficking.
Soroptimist also sponsors Live Your Dream.org, an online community empowering offline volunteer action. This self-motivated network is made up of people who wish to support women and girls in their quest to lead better lives, while gaining inspiration in their own lives. Members of the free online community work on topics such as women’s economic empowerment, ending violence against women, human trafficking, and more. They also have access to inspirational articles, tips, and blogs that can help them live their own personal dreams.
