Soroptimist International of Coronado became a Charter Member of Soroptimist International in October 1947. The name, Soroptimist, means “Best for Women,” and that is what our organization strives to achieve. Our vision is to Build Bridges of Opportunity for Women and Girls through our Luncheon fundraiser and scholarships and awards to help women and girls be their best by taking control of their lives, living according to their values and achieving their dreams.
Soroptimist International is a worldwide movement of volunteers, working together to transform the lives of women and girls. There are over 3000 Soroptimist International clubs in 130 countries and territories. Soroptimists come from a wide diversity of cultures and circumstances, but are united by a passion for improving the lives of women and girls in their community and beyond.
Be an active participant in working to improve the lives of others by joining our local club. We meet Thursday mornings and offer a variety of programs, entertainment, and meetings where you can share your ideas and learn about other non-profit organizations who focus on helping women and girls.
Remember that by working together as part of our club you will be shoulder-to-shoulder with women who want to make difference. SI Coronado has been helping women and girls achieve their dreams for more than 60 years. You will be joining an organization of women who not only are knowledgeable about what needs to be done, but also experienced in taking the steps to eradicate some of the wrongs of this world.
Impact the lives of women and girls who are struggling to overcome challenging, difficult, and seemingly hopeless lives. Many women and girls live day to day in overwhelming circumstances and need help getting past what feel like insurmountable obstacles. You can make a difference in their lives and help them to believe in themselves and their dreams.
