mentoring young women in construction
Many young girls are unaware that a career in construction can be extremely fun and financially rewarding. MyWIC is designed to give girls real hands-on experience to gain better knowledge of the industry, and experience the exhilaration of successfully performing tasks that promote leadership and team-building skills, as well as build self-confidence, self-esteem, and boost their overall self image. MyWIC is a free, six-day camp available to girls in grades 7th through 12th grade. The camp is designed to introduce the girls to construction and the numerous career opportunities available to women in a construction related field. We partner with several of the local trade unions in the Philadelphia area to make this experience possible for young women in Pennsylvania. The Philadelphia Chapter hosted it's first camp in 2009 and has continued to gain tremendous support and popularity since then. If you are interested in applying for our 2018 Camp, please complete the application here.
