Girls Can Too is a successful training program that provides hands-on learning experiences in the environmental and skilled trades sectors to young women in grades 7 to 12.

Join us on April 15th for our first virtual Girls Can Too design charrette! A design charrette integrates community voices in the design and planning process – and we want to hear from you! Working alongside professionals, you will have the opportunity to co-design Girls Can Too building projects in 2021 all while gaining valuable skills and mentorship opportunities from female professionals in the field.

Participants are eligible to receive community service hours by participating in the program.

This event is offered in collaboration with Pomerleau.
