Community Projects supported by Soroptimist International of Downtown Redding

Promising Smiles

We are looking to make a major impact on the women selected to improve their smile, oral health, and boost their self esteem. We want to remove any major oral health barrier to achieve financial self sufficiency and better their lives. Uninsured single women with children that demonstrate financial need and have career goals will be given priority consideration.

Dream It Be It - Career Support for Girls

Dream It, Be It: Career Support for Girls will help girls grow up to be strong, successful, happy adults. Dream It, Be It targets girls in secondary school who face obstacles to their future success. It provides girls with access to professional role models, career education and the resources to live their dreams. Soroptimist International of Downtown Redding will work in partnership with girls in small groups or a conference setting to provide them with the information and resources they want and need to be successful. The topics covered include career opportunities, setting and achieving goals, overcoming obstacles to success and how to move forward after setbacks or failures.
