Soroptimist International of Indian Rock (SIIR) will host a cost-free, day-long conference for secondary school-age girls, where they will learn about career opportunities, setting and achieving goals, and overcoming obstacles to success. They’ll also be able to apply for one of three scholarships. The Dream It, Be It event will take place on Saturday, March 30th at the Spring Mill Manor, 171 Jacksonville Road, Ivyland, PA 18974 from 8:00am to 3:00pm. Girls and their parents/guardians can learn more about Dream It, Be It: Career Support for Girls and register for the event by visiting soroptimistindianrock.org or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Throughout the day, the girls will attend sessions based on the following topics:
- Discovering your dreams
- Exploring careers
- Creating achievable goals
- Rising above obstacles
- Turning failure into success
- Balancing your stress
- Putting dreams into action
“We know that the plans girls have for their working lives can change. That’s why we’ve made sure that the skills developed through the day can be applied to any goals the girls identify throughout their education and careers,” said Patti Cullen, president of SIIR. “Girls will also have the opportunity to speak with working women and perhaps arrange a mentorship with a woman whose career interests them. And new this year, high school seniors attending will have the opportunity to apply for one of three scholarships ranging from $500 to $1500 to be applied to career supplies or tuition.”
In addition to learning important life skills, the girls will also leave with a variety of other resources and fun items, including a dream journal for keeping track of their goals, a decorated dream box, and a certificate for participating.
