MOSES LAKE — A conference designed to give high school girls the tools they need to get ready for college, and for life after college, is scheduled for Saturday. The “Dream It, Be It,” conference will be from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Columbia Basin Technical Skills Center, 900 Yonezawa Blvd.

The conference is sponsored by the Moses Lake chapter of Soroptimist International and is free to participants. Moses Lake Soroptimist members have been sponsoring “Dream It, Be It” since 2016.

“The program provides girls with access to professional role models, career education and the resources to achieve their dreams,” according to a press release from the chapter.

The program will include information on career opportunities, advice on setting and achieving goals, career and otherwise, and overcoming obstacles to success. The conference has sessions on “discovering your dreams,” creating achievable goals, coping with obstacles and rising above them, turning failure into success, balancing and overcoming stress and putting plans into action.

Girls will have the chance to talk with professional women in a variety of careers, including in breakout sessions, and learn about some of the opportunities and challenges in those careers. The speakers will talk about some real-life lessons, detailing how they overcame obstacles, what kind of education and planning is required to pursue various jobs, and how they found job opportunities.

“By reaching girls while they are still young, we not only can help them stay healthy and safe in the short term, but we can reduce the number of women in crisis in the future, putting them on a path that will help them realize their dreams,” the press release said.

Breakfast, lunch and snacks will be served, and all conference materials will be provided. An introductory course in yoga is scheduled as well.
