Empower your year! Rosie’s Girls afterschool incorporates everything we love about Rosie’s Girls summer camp in a format that can be tailored to any middle school in Vermont. In Rosie’s Girls Build, Weld, or Solar, students will be exposed to a career field that is non-traditional to women through hands-on activities and projects in a safe and supportive environment. Rosie’s Girls afterschool also incorporates our trademark social and emotional empowerment curriculum which addresses issues of society and identity in age-appropriate and engaging ways. The Rosie's Girls curriculum will support the Agency of Education's guidelines on students' personalized learning plans, a blueprint for their future careers.
