Trades & Career exploration for middle school girls*!
Rosie’s Girls ® is a STEM, trades, and career exploration program for middle school girls* 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.
