Life-changing experiences do not happen every day.

Though they do happen every year, thanks to our Leadership Academy.


This summer, Soroptimist International of Europe’s (SIE) Leadership Academy ‘Bulgaria 2023’, will be held from 26th June to 2nd July, with the support of SIE. Popovi Livadi, in the UNESCO World Natural Heritage site of the Pirin National Park, is the chosen location for the event hosted by SI Bulgaria in partnership with local organisation, the Leader Academy.



Participants include women aged 18 to 30 nominated by SIE Unions and Single Clubs and selected carefully by the Leader Academy. During the week-long international camp held in English, they will have the opportunity to discover and develop their talents, design projects in teams, create a network of friends, and learn about Soroptimist International’s activities.



“LA Bulgaria 2021 changed my life! I gained confidence about my abilities to put ideas into practice and found my place in Soroptimist International!”

Teodora Lisheva, a new member of SI Club Varna


Upon completion of the summer camp, the SIE Leadership Academy will offer a 12-month online mentoring programme, ensuring the continuation of the abilities the young women have gained. The best projects, selected at the end of the ‘Social Entrepreneurship’ programme, will be implemented in those communities deemed to benefit from them the most.


“SIE LA France 2022 created a positive change in my way of thinking and working. I am ready to spread the message!”

 Kristina Stoycheva, a new member of SI Club Boyana
