The Soroptimist of Grand Erie will be pausing the Dream It * Be It program at this time of COVID-19.  Rest assured of our commitment to continue to offer the Dream It Be It event and our tentative target date of Oct or the first of November. We are following the direction of the government, Soroptimist International of the Americas, Eastern Canada Region and the local school boards and we will keep you informed as we begin to plan again.  Thank you for your ongoing dedication to our Dream It * Be It secondary school girls career support event.

On the upside we are still working with our Advisory Steering Committee girls to keep them engaged, and doing wellness checks by hosting a ZOOM webinar twice a week.

The first Monday was a planning week and taking their direction to run these webinars twice a week, on Monday and Wednesday from 7:00 pm and what topics they want to cover.

In our sessions thus far we have presented sign language, meditation, organization and an amazing Q&A period with our graduated Steering Committee girls.

It is going to take all of us working together to navigate these challenging times.

I hope you and your family are safe and well.
