We offer year-round instruction for girls and gender-expansive students 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.
