Soroptimist International of Manassas is a service organization of business and professional women dedicated to improving the lives of women and girls in our local communities and throughout the world.
Each year SI Manassas sponsors the following awards to recognize and help women who are working to improve their lives and the lives of others:
Women’s Opportunity Awards program, gives grants to women who are the primary wage earners for their families and are enrolled in higher education or technical training to improve their economic status.
Violet Richardson Award recognizes young women who make the community and world a better place through volunteer efforts such as: fighting drugs, crime and violence; cleaning up the environment; and working to end discrimination and poverty. Volunteer actions that benefit women or girls are especially valued.
Soroptimist Ruby Award: For Women Helping Women acknowledges women who, through their personal or professional activities, work to improve the lives of women and girls. The work of these women helps to promote the issues that are important to the Soroptimist organization. Honorees are ordinary women who have worked in extraordinary ways to benefit women and girls.
In addition, we raise funds and volunteer for BEACON, BARN, ACTS, and Youth for Tomorrow's Home for Girls.
We meet on the second and fourth Thursday's of the month. New members are welcome. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
