Our Mission

A commitment to enhance the lives of others by promoting friendships, providing community service and applying our skills, talents and resources toward the betterment of women and their families.

Soroptimist International focuses on education because educated women and girls are less vulnerable to sex traffickers, more likely to leave a domestic violence situation and not return, able to access healthcare, less likely to live in poverty and able to raise stronger, healthier families.

Ready to Begin a New Life?

The Soroptimist Live Your Dream: Education & Training Awards for Women program has been helping women around the world since 1972. This program is a unique education award for women who provide the primary financial support for their families by providing cash grants to women who are working to better their lives through additional schooling and skills training. The Live Your Dream Awards give women the resources they need to improve their education, skills and employment prospects.

Applications will be taken between August 1 through November 15 every year.

Women of Distinction

This event was held to recognize women for their work  in the community and to empower women and girls.

This was the premier event in Martin County for many years, used to recognize outstanding women in our community and raise funds for our programs throughout the year.

Due to the pandemic, the 2020 Women of Distinction Awards Dinner had to be cancelled. We will no longer be involved in this event.

A big “Thank You” to everyone who supported us in this wonderful endeavor to recognize the outstanding women of Martin County.
