Dream It, Be It: Career Support for Girls

dream it, be it:
career support for girls

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. Our Soroptimist Dream It, Be It: Career Support for Girls program empowers girls to break cycles of poverty, violence, and abuse by giving them the self-confidence and knowledge they need to achieve success in their future careers and personal lives.

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.By reaching girls while they are still young, we not only can help them stay healthy and safe in the short term, but we can reduce the number of women in crisis in the future. Putting them on a path will help them realize their dreams.

This award-winning program helps teen girls grow up to be confident, happy, successful adults by providing access to professional role models, career education and the resources to live their dreams.
