Governor's Message

Welcome to Soroptimist International of the Americas, Camino Real Region.  Soroptimist is a global volunteer organization and the Camino Real Region is an amazing group of Soroptimists dedicated to economically empowering women and girls who face obstacles.  Collectively, our Region works through club sponsored events and programs to advocate for women and girl’s equality and their right to education.  Camino Real Region clubs participate in Soroptimist International of the Americas two signature Dream Programs: Live Your Dream Awards; and Dream It Be It Career Support for Girls.  

Not only have we helped women toward their educational goals, but we are impacting the cycle of abuse for many by empowering them to end it.  We can stand proud to know that the children and dependents of our Live Your Dream award recipients will know a better life and that through our mentorship, our continued encouragement, training and support we are making real positive change. Our Dream it Be it Career Support for girls program works 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.  By reaching girls while they are still young, we not only can help them stay healthy and safe in the short term, but we can reduce the number of women in crisis in the future. Putting them on a path will help them realize their dreams. Our focus is 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.  

It is my honor to volunteer alongside incredible Soroptimist leaders, witnessing first hand “women at their best helping women to be their best”.  Together we inspire women and girls to dream more, learn more, do more and become more. The Region is currently comprised of 21 clubs and we welcome new members and are seeking new communities to charter Soroptimist Clubs.  Please contact me if you would like to learn more about Soroptimist.
