Soroptimist El Dorado host event for girls

Soroptimist El Dorado hosted the club’s first annual Dream It, Be It: Career Support for Girls on April 7. Fifteen girls from El Dorado and Rosalia schools participated. This new global program of Soroptimist International seeks to empower girls to reach their full potential and become successful adults — by providing  access to role models, career education, and resources to live their dreams.

The recent event began with a welcome and ice breaker led by LuAnne Vides, El Dorado Middle School teacher. The girls created dream board collages representing their career goals. Glenda Fleener, Community Educator, shared job interviewing tips.

After enjoying a lunch prepared by Soroptimist El Dorado members, Christy Stewart at Great Beginnings Boutique moderated a fashion show. Angela Thompson from the Family Life Center led an activity that helped explore unhealthy teen relationships.
