Weld-Ed at Lorain County Community College is providing a new opportunity for middle school girls to learn in a hands-on, exciting way about welding and related careers at Rosie’s Girls Summer Camp. Any girl entering grades 7 and 8 are eligible for the program.
The camp runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., June 15-26. Rosie’s Girls is a summer program that is designed to build middle school girls’ self-confidence and open their eyes to the many choices they have in life. One of the main activities at the camp will be to design and create their own sculptures to take home.
This two-week program includes hands-on welding, electronics, CAD, and other Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) related activities as well as arts, ropes course, and "Girls’ World" games and projects.
Energetic and committed females over the age of 20 are also needed as camp counselors to support and supervise girls attending the camp. Creativity, flexibility, self-direction, and the ability to relate positively and respectfully to pre-adolescent girls as well as a commitment to equity in education and the workforce are required.
For more information about the camp or to volunteer, please contact Ramona Anand at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (440) 366-4930.
