We are looking for a enthusiastic woman or girl wishing to volunteer their skills and knowledge to help with our club website. This would be approximately 2-4 hours a week.

Soroptimists are committed to a world where women and girls together achieve their individual and collective potential, realise aspirations and have an equal voice in creating strong, peaceful communities worldwide.

We strive for: human rights for all, global peace and international good will, advancing women’s potential, integrity and democratic decision making. We do this through volunteering our skills and knowledge. We are a diverse group of Women from different ethnicities and vocational backgrounds and enjoy life-long friendships.

Some of the projects we have worked on in the past include ECPACT Child ALERT (the Eradication of Child Prostitution, and Child Trafficking), and encouraging a low decile school children to attend school on the North Shore. We are also proud to support women in need with second hand clothing and toiletries.

NOT KNOWING AT THIS STAGE HOW LONG WE MAY ACTUALLY STAY AT ALERT LEVEL 3 WE HAVE DECIDED TO POSTPONE THE CLOTHES SWAP. Please watch out for the new date.
COVID-19 has had a big negative impact on women re-entering the workforce which now requires extra effort, confidence, career advice, styling and having the right professional work wear, as well as on-going professional networking, leadership skills and retention programmes.
Soroptimists International North Shore have organised a clothes swap to help raise funds to assist women to gain employment and become financially independent. Dress for Success has helped at least 60% of the women they work with succeed in securing employment.
Door entry $5 and dollar donations for clothes swaps. Soroptimists are providing refreshments and will be selling raffle tickets prizes to be drawn on the day.
This is a wonderful opportunity to donate pre-loved clothing and meet new friends, or bring your existing friends and find some wonderful swaps for your wardrobe.
