What We Do

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.

There When It Matters Most

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

Why We Do It

Far too many girls face barriers on the pathway to achieving their dreams. Obstacles such as poverty, teen dating violence, and teen pregnancy can get in the way of a girl's ability to make her dreams a reality. Dream It, Be It equips girls to overcome their obstacles, set goals, and head towards success.

The Research Behind Dream It, Be It

Our innovative Dream It, Be It curriculum was designed based on rigorous research. We interviewed and surveyed hundreds of girls in 22 countries. They told us they need:

Our Research

We also interviewed experts on adolescent girls and spoke with Soroptimists to ensure we developed a program that reflects both girls’ needs and the ability of our volunteers to deliver.
