Women In The Trades
The Women in the Trades program gives hands-on training to help women transition into a well-paid construction career and offers the same training opportunities in a female-only learning environment.
Our focus is on providing unique outreach and training events designed by women employed in construction. These activities inform girls and women about construction work, apprentice opportunities, and provide pre-apprentice courses for exploring a trade.
