Soroptimist St. Helena 2018-12-01T03:45:28+00:00

Soroptimist International of St. Helena is part of a global volunteer movement, founded nearly a century ago here in Northern California.

Officially recognized by the United Nations, Soroptimist is a non-profit that advocates on behalf of women and girls in some 130 countries. Our network of members doesn’t just speak for women and girls—we also act on their behalf by making available educational and professional programming targeted at females of all age groups.

Since its establishment in 1954, the St. Helena chapter has carried on the Soroptimist tradition of helping women and girls achieve their goals. We believe the best way to improve the lives of women and girls is to improve their access to educational and professional training. To this end, we offer a host of unique scholarships and grants targeted at various age groups and opportunities. Through our annual crab feed, now in its 41st year, the club has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for these local programs.
