This winter and spring, the GRIT (Girls* Representing in Trades) program is offering three 20-hour workshops for high school students in Missoula and western Montana! These in-depth workshops will cover carpentry, welding, and auto mechanics! In each workshop you’ll gain tangible skills through hours of hands-on practice, work as a team to complete projects and solve problems, build confidence and leadership skills, make new friends, and have lots of fun!
You can register for as many workshops as you’d like. We will accept a maximum of 15 participants in each. We ask participants to attend all dates of the workshop they register for.
In addition to these in-depth programs, GRIT will continue offering shorter one-day or half-day workshops on topics such as butchering, heavy equipment operations, small engine repair, electrical, bike mechanics, and blacksmithing. Stay tuned for details on ywcaofmissoula.org and follow @grittyguts on instagram!
