Since its inception in 1963, Soroptimist International of Huntington Beach has worked to create a better world for women and girls. Diversity and Fellowship is one of the core values that drives our work, and we model it in our membership and the women and girls we serve. It pains us to see racial injustice and violence of any kind. While we are living through confusing times right now, where consensus is often hard to find, we remain committed to working for a more just and equal world. We urge introspection and collaboration on ways we can work together to fix systems that do not serve all of us equally. We know that many of the women and girls we serve face inequality because of their race or ethnicity, as well as their gender. As part of a global nonprofit, we will continue to do our part and contribute positively to our community and the world by helping women and girls to reach their full potential by getting the education or training they need to achieve economic empowerment.
Our Vision: Women and Girls have the resources and opportunities to reach their full potential and live their dreams.
Our Core Values
Women and girls live free from discrimination.
Women and girls are free to act in their own best interest.
Women and girls deserve to lead full and productive lives through access to education.
Diversity & Fellowship
Women from varied backgrounds and perspectives work together to improve the lives of women and girls.
With the help of our members, supporters and donors, we empower women and girls to live their dreams primarily through our “Dream Programs“: Live Your Dream, Education & Training Awards for Women, and Dream It, Be It, Career Support for High School Girls who face obstacles to success.
We are excited to announce that this year our club gave 14 Live Your Dream Awards.
Our focus is on education because, educated women and girls are:
Less vulnerable to sex traffickers
More likely to leave a domestic violence situation and not return
More able to access health care
Less likely to live in poverty
More able to raise stronger, healthier families
All Program Meetings are open to the public. All net proceeds from Fundraisers & Events are used to help improve the lives of women and girls in our community and around the world. Please see our Meetings & Events page or contact us for more details!
