Online and Distance Learning Opportunities
Looking to plug a bit of career exploration or inspiration into your day?
Vermont Works for Women has put together three NEW video series!
- Tech@Work Online is a speaker series program that introduces tech center students to gender diverse role models in various industries and career fields.
- VWW Quick Tips: Get to know a different VWW staff member each week as they showcase tools, skills, fun activities they are doing at home while we all social distance and serve our community remotely.
- What’s in Rosie’s Toolbox: a weekly video series where our very own Nell Carpenter, Youth Program Manager, will highlight useful tools, interview professionals and offer up fun, at-home, activities!
We also have an online and distance learning opportunities guide below for some video, computer games/activities, worksheet, home activity, and book suggestions related to STEAM career exploration, career related skill development, gender based empowerment, and more!
