Toolbox: Giving Girls Tools for Life

Toolbox: Giving Tools for Life provides girls ages 8-18 with hands-on instruction and experience in skilled trades. Toolbox will be the only program in Siouxland and one of the few in the country dedicated exclusively to providing girls with an opportunity to discover, experience, and learn skilled trades from professionals and trained educators. The program includes four different skilled trades including Construction/Carpentry, Electrical, HVAC, and Plumbing. This will be a regular part of Girls Inc.’s afterschool programs providing skilled trade exposure and exploration, hands-on learning, mentoring by tech school faculty and female students, and job site tours.
