Dream it Be it


Welcome to Dream it Be it!

This is a one day event of inspiration and exploration. Soroptimist International of the TriCities is hosting this free conference for teen girls (Grades 9 to 12) in the TriCities to explore a variety of career possibilities they may not even be aware of! The day will include
