Dream It, Be It – Girl’s Conference: We are currently in the planning stage for our SECOND Dream It, Be It Girl’s Career Conference this fall. This one-day conference is for high school girls (ages 14 – 18).
Dream It, Be It: Career Support for Girls will help girls grow up to be strong, successful, happy adults. Dream It, Be It targets girls in secondary school who face obstacles to their future success. It provides girls with access to professional role models, career education and the resources to live their dreams. Soroptimist International of Surrey/Delta, in partnership with Girl’s Empowered, will work with girls in a conference setting to provide them with the information and resources they want and need to be successful. The topics covered include career opportunities, setting and achieving goals, overcoming obstacles to success and how to move forward after setbacks or failures.
Professional women in various careers/occupations/trades are invited to set up a “table” where they will be available for girls to seek out, speak with about their career choices, how they got there, what obstacles they encountered, and an overview of their education and career journey. Additional follow-up opportunities may include a mentor program where girls will be matched with professional women to gain more insight into a specific career through the following ways:
- College visits
- Financing Education
- Workplace visits
- Shadow days
- Informational Interviews
Date: To Be Announced (planning for November 2016)
Location: To Be Announced
