Soroptimist International, at the local level, is a Women's Service club. We meet weekly, usually around a meal, to socialize, to organize our events & programs, to learn more about our community. The focus of Soroptimist is to improve the lives of women and girls. The members of Soroptimist in the Rogue Valley further this goal through a variety of hands-on service projects. From one-day events, to long-term involvement, every member finds a way to help women and girls that suits her personality, talents and schedule.
Local clubs work on community-based projects that benefit women and girls locally. Club projects range from providing mammogram to low-income women, providing back-to-school clothes for low-income girls, providing career closet to women re-entering the job market, sponsoring self-esteem programs for elementary girls, and raising funding for local food banks.
In the Rogue Valley, the various clubs work together to find and award Women working to improve their lives with the “Live Your Dream Award.”
