Dream It, Be It: Career Support for Girls!

Soroptimist’s global program for girlsDream It, Be It: Career Support for Girls – targets girls in secondary school who face obstacles to their future success. It provides girls with access to professional role models, career education and resources to live their dreams. Career support includes help and assistance to pursue an occupation that will offer opportunities for long-term success. Although we don’t think all girls will know what they want to do for the rest of their lives, the skills they learn in Dream It, Be It will help them regardless of the career they choose to pursue or when they choose to pursue it.

The Programs Objectives are:

  1. Increase the number of girls who feel prepared to pursue their career goals.
  2. Increase the number of girls who feel comfortable creating achievable goals.
  3. Increase the number of girls who have tools to overcome obstacles to success.
  4. Increase the number of girls who understand the importance of resilience.
  5. Increase the number of girls who can connect personal values with possible careers.
  6. Increase the number of girls who feel more confident about their future success.
  7. Increase the number of girls who have professional role models.
