Welcome to
Soroptimist International Connecticut Shoreline

We're chartering a new Soroptimist club on the shoreline area of CT!
Are you interested??

Please read our news release about our new club!

Our mission is to improve the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment in local communities and throughout the world. We are a global volunteer organization. As an international volunteer service organization, we invite you to consider becoming a Soroptimist (which means "best for women") and join thousands of business and community-minded women worldwide who are contributing their time, talent and treasure to make a material difference in the lives of other women.

To find out more about Soroptimist or to learn about membership in our new Shoreline club, please contact Beth Peterson.
