Trades & Career exploration for middle school girls*!

Rosie’s Girls ® is a STEM, trades, and career exploration program for middle school girls and gender-expansive youth entering grades 6-8. At Rosie’s Girls summer camps, participants are introduced to a career field that is non-traditional for their gender through hands-on learning in a supportive and empowering environment. Rosie's Girls is offered in two different themes: Build and Weld.

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.

Rosie's Girls summer camp is a week-long day camp offered in communities all across Vermont. Each summer, VWW leads two or three camps, and then partners with schools or community organizations to host Rosie's Girls in an additional two or three communities. 

2022 Camps

Thank you for such a great summer! Vermont Works for Women served more than 50 youth in 2022 in Essex and Barre, and through partnerships in Swanton, Windsor, and Rutland. We cannot wait for Summer 2023! Please contact Caelan Keenan, VWW's Youth Program Manager, with any camp-related questions.


*Rosie’s Girls programming, both summer and afterschool, is open to female-identifying and gender-expansive youth, including transgender, non-binary, and gender-questioning 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.
