The Trades & Tech Gala for Girls promote non-traditional careers to female students in grades 9-12 by introducing them to various non-traditional career options with guest mentors.


Female students in grades 9-12


The Galas are designed to introduce young women in high school, who are interested in the skilled trades and technologies, to female mentors who are currently working or studying in a related career field.

The Galas foster a positive environment in which young women have the opportunity to hear speakers discuss the rewards and challenges of their chosen career path and to network with mentors from their community. Mentors provide students with advice, guidance and inspiration by sharing their experiences. Participants leave empowered and informed about a variety of career choices available to them, many of them in non-traditional areas
