Trades & Tech Gala for Girls are designed to introduce young women in high school to careers in the skill trades and technology sectors.

Trades & Tech Gala for Girls is a relaxed dinner that fosters 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 connect with mentors from their community. Mentors provide students with advice, guidance and inspiration by sharing their experiences. Girls leave feeling empowered and informed about non-traditional careers.

 

 

Galas will continue in the fall.
Stay tuned!
