Young Women in Trades and Technologies (YWITT) is a program designed to break barriers and give young women the opportunity and confidence to explore different career options in non-traditional skilled trades and technologies.

The YWITT program will start youth on a journey to gain awareness, exploration, and experience. Connect with CAREERS to discover opportunities for high school students to land a paid internship while they are earning high school credits and work experience hours towards their apprenticeship certification.

Our Virtual Mentor Series will allow young women in grades 9 – 12 to connect with successful female industry leaders and hear about their career stories that will inspire and educate these young ladies about the incredible array of opportunities available.

YWITT will also offer hands-on interactive camps for high school females who want to take it a step further and spend a few days touring shops, handling tools, meeting new people, creating special projects and learning from professionals in the skilled trades.
