SINYC President's Letter

Welcome to Soroptimist International of New York City (SINYC), this year celebrating our 95th anniversary as a club.

We are a local club, part of a national and international organization with consultative status on the United Nations Economic and Special Council. At the UN, Soroptimist Representatives advocate for improving the lives of women and girls around the world.

Our mission includes working towards economic empowerment for women and girls through education.


To that end, SINYC presents two monetary awards each year; the Education Award and the Live Your Dream Award. The Education Award is given to a woman attending school for her first degree, to be used for her school fees. The Live Your Dream Award is given to a female head of household, studying, supporting her family and beginning her career.


The Dream It, Be It program encourages girls to enter both traditional and non-traditional professions.
