Dream It Be It - Educating Girls

Experts say educating girls is a major key to improving the global standard of living.  We agree.  That’s why four of our programs focus on promoting education and mentoring for girls, particularly vulnerable girls.

We want to reach girls when it matters most. By reaching girls while they are still young, we not only can help them stay healthy and safe in the short term, but we can reduce the number of women in crisis in the future. Putting them on a path will help them realize their dreams. Dream it Be It gives girls the tools they need to achieve their education and career goals, empowering them to break cycles of poverty, violence, and abuse.

Dream It Be It Conferences & Workshops

We host ongoing workshops and conferences to encourage girls in exploring different careers, creating achievable goals, and discovering their dreams. We explore:

  • Career opportunities
  • Setting and achieving goals
  • Overcoming obstacles to success
  • Moving forward after setbacks or failures

Our next Dream it Be it Conference is coming up on October 25, 2019.  Registration is open now!
