Serving Women and Girls Since 1950.
Women and Girls have the resources and opportunities to reach their full potential and lives their dreams.
Soroptimist International of Artesia Cerritos is part of a global Soroptmist International that empowers women and girls with access to the education and training they need to achieve their potential.
Why we do what we do:
Because we believe that empowered women and girls are less likely to stay in domestic violence or other toxic situations…Because we believe that empowered women and girls are less likely to become victims of human trafficking…Because we believe that empowered women and girls can and will change the world for good!
With the help of our members, supporters and donors, we empower women and girls to live their dreams 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 we will be giving 10 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 contact us for more details!
