About the Girls Can Too Program

Girls Can Too provides young women with hands-on learning experiences in construction and ecology. The program includes mentorship and training opportunities with females from a variety of professions.

Upon completion of the program, participants receive a certificate verifying their hours of community service, which can be used towards their high school diploma.

All projects contain construction and ecology aspects that will enable participants to gain hands-on skills, learn about the natural environment and sustainability. Female mentors will provide practical instruction, positive leadership, host workshops, and share first-hand experiences.
