WHO WE ARE
Soroptimist is a global volunteer organization working to improve the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment. The name Soroptimist means "best for women". Worldwide, Soroptimist International has over 3,000 clubs with over 76,000 members in more than 120 countries or territories.
The first Soroptimist club was formed in 1921 by a group of 80 women in Oakland, Alameda County, California, USA. Soroptimist was formed because in 1921 women who were interested in volunteering in their communities were not permitted to join male service organizations. Since that time, the organization has worked to help women improve their standing in the world.
Our American Canyon club began with 12 passionate, energetic women sitting around in the living room of one of the future members, discussing ho we might go about starting our own Soroptimist group. Such was the birth of SI of American Canyon 2018. We were chartered in May of 2018 and have now grown to 35 ambitious members, all wanting to make a difference for women and girls in our community and beyond.
