I pledge allegiance to Soroptimist and to the ideals for which it stands: the sincerity of friendship, the joy of achievement, the dignity of service, the integrity of profession, the love of country, I will put forth my greatest effort to promote, uphold and defend these ideals for a larger fellowship in home, in society, in business, for country and for God

Strengthening and enhancing the lives of women and youth in our community and the world.

“Soroptimist” is a coined term which means, “Best for Women.” Soroptimist International of Tahoe Sierra was chartered on Friday, March 4, 1977. Our club is part of the Sierra Nevada Region, which is one of seven regions under the direction of Soroptimist International of the Americas. The mission statement of Soroptimist International of Tahoe Sierra is to “Strengthen and enhance the lives of women and youth in our community and the world.” With our established mission in mind, we participate in programs at our local level based on the specific needs of our community. In addition, our club is mindful of the need to enhance the lives of women and youth throughout the world.

  • Upcoming Speakers & Events

    • Committee Chair Presentations

      July 19, 2018
      Our club is committee driven and each of our members are invited to participate on at least one technical and one service committee to make all of the fabulous things happen for our community and our global projects. We will spend a few minutes talking about the highlights and "Peak Times" for each of these committees.While our members sign up for certain committees, it does not limit any member from joining in on the fun. We always believe that many hands make lighter work. 

    • Speaker: Joy Heuer with Girls on the Run

      July 26, 2018
      Joy will tell us all about our local chapter of Girls on the Run. This is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.

    • August Business Meeting

      Aug. 2, 2018
      Join us as we discuss all things SITS which makes our club run. It's a morning of information, breakfast treats, COFFEE, and lots of laughs. 

    • Speaker: Kyla Schrauben and Tech Trek

      August 9, 2018
      Join us for a very special speaker, Kyla Schrauben. Kyla will share her experience at this year's Tech Trek. Through hands-on problem solving and encounters with women role models in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), AAUW Tech Trek helps girls see their futures while having nonstop fun. This one-week summer camp is backed by AAUW’s research and designed to make STEM fields exciting and accessible to girls in middle school — the age when girls’ participation in these fields statistically drops. For many girls, the week-long camp sparks their curiosity and places them on a path toward success.
