Dream It, Be It: Career Support for Girls will help girls grow up to be strong, successful, happy adults. Dream It, Be It targets girls in secondary school who face obstacles to their future success. It provides girls with access to professional role models, career education and the resources to live their dreams. Soroptimist clubs will 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. The topics covered include career opportunities, setting and achieving goals, overcoming obstacles to success and how to move forward after setbacks or failures.

For the 2014-2015 club year, Soroptimist clubs are asked to learn more about the program and begin planning a local-level project using the Club Planning Toolkit. The curriculum will be released in January 2015.  Additional information is available on the Soroptimist International homepage.
