Building Strong Girls
The Rosie’s Girls® Program is a unique summer program for 11-13-year-old girls designed to build self-esteem, physical confidence, interpersonal cooperation and leadership acumen through learning and applying basic skills in carpentry and other technical trades.
The program gets its name from the fictional character "Rosie the Riveter," who symbolized the emerging strength and power of women who went to work in the defense plants while men were fighting World War II. Rosie has inspired generations of women to take the path less traveled and to do it with courage and conviction.
