This Girl Can Workshops
In November and December, 2018, "This Girl Can" Manufacturing and Construction Workshops were held at West High School.  Girls in 7th, 8th or 9th grades as well as their female mentors (mothers, aunts, grandmothers, etc) signed up to learn about either the manufacturing industry or construction industry.  Typically these industries are predominantly male-oriented so these workshops gave girls the opportunity to get hands on experience in both of these areas.

Females that signed up for the "This Girl Can Manufacturing" workshops learned how to weld and were able to complete a decorative lawn art project with their mentor; females that signed up the the "This Girl Can Construction" workshops learned about the construction industry and were able to complete a wooden bench with their female mentors.

These workshops are invaluable since young girls may not otherwise have the opportunity to experience these predominantly male trades!
