Who We Are
Soropt-a-what? Don't let our name confuse you! Even though Soroptimist International of Junction City, Oregon is a global volunteer organization we are made up of local women from Junction City and surrounding towns. Our mission is to provide women and children with access to education and training they need to achieve economic empowerment. Like the loose meaning of the two combined Latin words, soror and optima, Soroptimists simply want the "Best for Women®."
Find out more about us at one of our meetings, every second and fourth Tuesday of the month, twelve o'clock at Shadow Hills Country Club in Junction City or contact us below.
***Due to COVID-19 we are no longer meeting in-person. Please contact us for the latest information regarding our meetings.***
