In addition, we promote the awareness of the importance of the College to the Nevada County community.

The word Soroptimist is translated to mean “Best for Women.” Soroptimist International works to promote human rights for all, and to advance the status of women. Through Program of Service activities, members promote positive social change through Awareness, Advocacy and Action. There are almost 1,000,000 members in 120 countries worldwide. Soroptimists are women who use the special expertise and management skills developed in their working life to advance the status of women and make the world a better place.
