About our club

Soroptimist International of Moreno Valley, chartered on April 22, 1983, is committed to a world where women and girls together achieve their individual and collective potential, realize aspirations and have an equal voice in creating strong, peaceful communities worldwide.


Our club meets the first four Wednesdays from September through June for a one-hour breakfast meeting beginning at 7:00 AM at Brandon's Diner, located at 24626 Sunnymead Blvd., Moreno Valley, CA.  The first scheduled Wednesday each month is a closed board meeting.  Agenda for meetings on subsequent Wednesdays include business meetings, guest speakers, and training to  help us achieve Soroptimist International's goal to transform the lives and status of women and girls through education, empowerment and enabling opportunities.
