Dream It, Be It
The Soroptimist Global Program for Girls
As Soroptimist International of the Americas continues its work to create sustainable, measurable change in the lives of girls in our 20 countries and territories, we are optimistic this program will help girls to reach their full potential and live their dream.
Dream It, Be It: Career Support for Girls helps 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.
Working in partnership with local community groups, Soroptimist Raleigh will facilitate small group workshops or a conference to provide girls 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.
Soroptimist International of Raleigh partnered with Geared For Greatness (Chasta Hamilton) and Stage Door Dance in Brier Creek Raleigh, in June for a 90 minute workshop for middle school girls entitled Dream It, Be It: A COVID Re-set. This workshop was an intentional soft launch to test the response to the material, and was an abbreviated version of the full program which takes up an entire day. The program included the following modules: Overcoming Obstacles, Balancing Your Stress and Creating Achievable Goals. The event was a great success, you can read more about it in this post.
