Gender Equality…Self-sufficiency… Empowerment… Transformation… Living Your Dreams…
These words reflect our mission at Soroptimist International of Huntington Beach and we are dedicated to fulfilling the mission of Soroptimist – that is, “Soroptimist improves the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment” in local communities and throughout the world. We are women striving to be our best, helping other women be their best.
Our Core Values:
Soroptimist International of the Americas is committed to:
- Gender Equality: Women and girls live free from discrimination.
- Empowerment: Women and girls are free to act in their own best interest.
- Education: Women and girls deserve to lead full and productive lives through access to education
- Diversity and Fellowship: Women from varied backgrounds and perspectives work together to improve the lives of women and girls.
Soroptimist International is a global volunteer movement working together to transform the lives of women and girls. Approximately 75,500 Soroptimists in 130 countries and territories support community–based and global projects benefiting women and girls. The organization is particularly concerned with providing women and girls access to education, as this is the most effective path to self-sufficiency and realizing one’s goals. The Huntington Beach club is a part of Soroptimist International of the Americas, one of the four federations of Soroptimist International. Soroptimist members help women and girls live their dreams each and every day.
