2021 VIRTUAL “Dream It, Be It” Happening April 10th

Are you / do you know a secondary school aged girl? If so don’t make plans for Saturday April 10th!

Dream It, Be It: Career Support for Girls gives girls the tools they need to achieve their education and career goals, empowering them to break cycles of poverty, violence, and abuse. All girls face barriers because of their gender. 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. Soroptimist International Grand Erie has been working with a dynamic group of young women, our “Steering Committee” so they can tell us what issues are most important and impactful to them.

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.

Topics We Cover

  • Career opportunities
  • Setting and achieving goals
  • Overcoming obstacles to success
  • Moving forward after setbacks or failures

Inspiring Our Youth/Empowering Young Women


A beautiful write up about our upcoming event- have you signed your daughter up yet? Have you signed up? It’s sure to be a great event! John, the photographer from 4brant.com, thought our event was going to do great work. He shared with the girls a personal story about why our club meant something to him, and thanked the girls for focusing on themselves:).
