We offer year-round instruction for girls to bring their audacious ideas to life. With three after-school sessions (fall, winter, spring), six weeks of summer programs, and weekend workshops, girls can begin or continue along multiple pathways at Girls Garage. From woodworking and carpentry to MIG welding and screenprinting, our programs challenge girls to use technical skills, creativity, and their individual voice to make a positive impact on our community.

Summer Program

Young Women's Design and Building Institute

This week-long institute introduces 9th-12th grade girls to multiple design and building techniques, skills, media, and a community of fearless builder women. From graphic design and screen printing to carpentry, welding, and architectural drafting, girls will explore the possibilities of building in their own lives, learning, and futures. This program is by application only, at no cost to participants if accepted, and limited to a cohort of 12 girls.
