Trades & Career exploration for middle school girls*!
Rosie’s Girls ® is a trades and career exploration program for middle school girls and gender non-conforming youth entering grades 6-8. At Rosie’s Girls, participants are exposed to a career field that is non-traditional for women through hands-on learning in a supportive environment. In addition to trades and technical learning, Rosie's Girls includes a social and emotional curriculum known as "Power Skills." This curriculum is designed to create a space for program participants to grapple with life and societal issues that are relevant to themselves, while building capacity around facing and discussing them. Rosie’s Girls also incorporates art, team building, and other fun and games. Rosie’s Girls staff is highly trained in creating a space that is both physically and emotionally safe and empowering for all, and which encourages participants to lift each other up in trying new things and taking risks.
Registration for Rosie's Girls Camps during Summer 2021 is now closed. If you would like to be added to the email list for summer 2022, please contact our Youth Program Manager Caelan Keenan at email@example.com.
*Rosie’s Girls programming, both summer and afterschool, is open to female identifying and gender non-conforming youth, including transgender, non-binary, and gender expansive youth. We recognize that young people are increasingly likely to identify outside of the binary, whether they have the language or space to do so publicly, and we want to be certain that we are providing them with the opportunity to participate in our program if they want to do so.
We strive to accommodate youth of all abilities, so please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you are considering participating and might need accommodations of any kind.
Summer camps are supported in part by grants and individual supporters like you. If you wish to help send a girl to camp please visit: vtworksforwomen.org/donate
