The Live Your Dream Award honors women who are head of household and who have returned to school or training to upgrade their skills and improve their status and ability to support their families. Applications are given to community colleges and training schools.

Soroptimist powers LiveYourDream.org as a way to expand its ability to serve the world's most vulnerable women and girls. 

What we’ve accomplished:

  1. Soroptimist members in 20 countries and territories participate in the Live Your Dream: Education and Training Awards for WomenDream It, Be It: Career Support for Girls; and local projects tailored to meet the community needs of women and girls.

  2. In 2017, Kelly Barnett, Katherine German, Stacy Acevedo, and Sarah Leksan were selected to receive thousands in grant money. These awards were announced at the Soroptimist of Visalia Annual Awards Dinner.

  3. Soroptimist Visalia improved the lives of these women by providing cash awards allowing them to pursue their academic goals while providing for their families.
