That is what the organization strives to achieve. Soroptimists are women at their best, working to help other women be their best. Soroptimist members belong to local clubs, like ours, which deliver the "Dream Programs" of Soroptimist International of the Americas to their communities.
Our Signature Programs span all Soroptimist International Regions...
Live Your Dream Award...assisting women who provide the primary source of financial support for their families by giving them the resources they need to improve their education, skills and employment prospects ...along with many local projects such as renovating domestic violence shelters and providing mammograms to low-income women, to sponsoring self-esteem workshops for teenage girls.
International Day of Education
Changing Course, Transforming Education
UNESCO will be celebrating the 4th International Day of Education on January 24th. This special day empowers all countries to increase their commitment to education for all children and youth. Over the course of the pandemic we have seen first hand the changes in delivering education, with the continuing goal of educators to nurture success of all students. Soroptimist International Thunder Bay also strives to make a difference for women and girls in our community and around the world, through the Soroptimist International signature programs, "Live Your Dream" award and the "Dream It, Be It" initiatives. Like UNESCO, Soroptimist International Thunder Bay believes that education is the key to empowerment and economic success. As we celebrate this event, Soroptimist International Thunder Bay wishes to acknowledge the work of all in the education community, and their continuing commitment to the well being of students in their care.
