Membership Drive through early June

Get Involved with Us!

Soroptimists of Lake Oswego/West Linn are holding a membership drive April through early June 2020. 

"Soroptimist" [suh-rop-tuh-mist] noun. A global volunteer network of women in 130 countries and territories who work to improve the lives of women and girls. Best for women. What the organization strives to be---women at our best, helping other women be their best.

OUR VISION: Women and girls will have the resources and opportunities to reach their full potential and live their dreams.

OUR MISSION: To improve the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment.

HELPING WOMEN & GIRLS TO LIVE THEIR DREAMS

Soroptimist believe the most effective way to empower women and girls is by providing them with access to education. Educated women and girls are far more likely to realize their potential.

Soroptimist's Live Your Dream: Education and Training Awards for Women annual disburses about $1.7 million in education grants to more than 1,200 women who have overcome enormous personal obstacles. Recipients may use the cash grants to offset any costs associated with their efforts to attain additional education or training. Award recipients go on to enjoy improved employment prospects, greater earning potential, higher self-esteem, and serve as positive role models for their children.

Dream It, Be It: Career Support for Girls , Soroptimist's newest program, provides girls with tangible strategies to accomplish their career goals.

The Lake Oswego/West Linn club is currently meeting virtually the 3rd Saturday of each month at 10 a.m.  Club year runs July 1st through June 31st each year.
