About the event

Our intensive a week-long summer programs (4 sessions in June) teach girls, and young women how to use tools, build real-world projects and connect with their community. The program will focus on skill-building and a few take-home woods that combine creative construction skills and design challenges in response to social challenges. Our Youth will have the opportunity to learn and hone creative and vocational STEM skills with support from local STEM groups, Mentors, Women in Construction, Manufacturing, Engineering, Arts, and women’s Architects. Integrating Mentor’s technical skills, we believe our programs equip youth with the personal power and literal power tools to build the world they want to see.

This summer the theme is '‘Build Their Own Seats at the Table’. Your seat is your identity and what you care about. The table is where decisions are made. So, we are teaching Young Women participants, known as 'Builders' to build and bring their seats to the table. An opportunity for the builders to use their voices and power tools to build their individual chair that represents their personal uniqueness while examining the value of identity, voice, and lived experience in civic spaces.

Timeline: In June,  M-F 9 am to 4 pm, supported by Mentors, artists, and Youth Summer Counselors.
