Our mission is to help female students earn about and start careers in high-paying, high-skilled careers in union construction trades.
Massachusetts Girls in Trades was launched in 2015 by a partnership of educational, governmental and union organizations with a shared goal of supporting and encouraging female career and technical education students and alumnae to pursue careers in the building trades. The group's mission is to help female students in middle school and high school--as well as recent high school graduates--to learn about and start careers in high-paying, high-skilled careers in union construction trades.More info
