Vermont Works for Women
Vermont Works for Women promotes economic justice by advancing gender equity and supporting women and youth at every stage of their career journeys.
Rosie’s Girls is a trades and career exploration summer camp and after school program for middle school girls and gender-expansive youth entering grades 6-8. At Rosie’s Girls, participants are introduced to a career field that is non-traditional for their gender through hands-on learning in a supportive and empowering environment. In addition to trades and technical learning, Rosie’s Girls includes a social and emotional curriculum known as “Power Skills.”
The Windham Foundation awarded $5,000 to support implementation of this innovative program in multiple counties throughout the State.
