  • Participating in Soroptimist International of the America’s “Dream It, Be It” campaign (formerly known as the “Girl Power” project). On a local level, the club offers support to young girls on Maui to help them grow up to be strong, successful, happy adults. The club coordinates various activities such as a film night to kickoff the campaign (we have screened films such as “Miss Representation”). The club also organizes professional workshops and career mentorship programs that are part of the campaign and can be found on the Soroptimist International of Maui “Dream It, Be It” campaign website by clicking here.
