Helping girls grow to be confident, successful, happy adults!
Dream It, Be It reaches girls in secondary school who face obstacles to their future success. Through small group workshops or a conference setting, we mentor girls on setting and achieving their goals, moving forward after setbacks or failures, and discovering career opportunities.
The Dream It, Be It Curriculum includes sessions on:
(1) Discovering Your Dreams (5) Turning Failure to Success
(2) Exploring Careers (6) Balancing Your Stress, and
(3) Creating Achievable Goals (7) Putting Dreams into Action
(4) Rising Above Obstacles
SI of Salt Lake has implemented this curriculum through partnerships with local alternative high schools.
A mentorship program is currently in the planning stages.
Meet our 2020 Dream It - Be It Scholarship Winner Emeline Katoa
Emeline Katoa is a graduate of Granite Connections High School, where she participated in SI of Salt Lake's Dream It - Be It Program.
In her application essay, Emeline shares that she has wanted to become a teacher since she was seven years old. Her dream is to teach high school Math and Biology. Her motivation is not to make money, but to make a difference in the lives of students in the way that teachers have made a difference in her life.
Emeline is the youngest of nine children and will be the first person in her family to attend college. She will begin her college career at Salt Lake Community College.
About SI SLC, Emeline states, "your organization is a great example, for me because I have dreamt it, and now I’ll be it." Congratulations, Emeline! We're all rooting for you.
