Rosie’s Girls - Sponsored by Vermont Works for Women

The Rosie’s Girls® Summer Program is a three week camp for early adolescent girls that encourages participants to develop and strengthen their capacities and confidence and helps them expand their perception of the range of educational and career options that are attainable. Using a unique, holistic approach, Rosie’s Girls combines hands-on instruction in the skilled trades with a broad array of other activities explicitly designed to encourage girls to develop their own strength, power and confidence in an atmosphere that is fun, supportive, and positive.

The program runs at sites nationwide.  To find out more about participating in the program or to bringing it to your community, go to http://www.vtworksforwomen.org/
