Build a Dream has connected all of the career elements, creating a pipeline between students and employers.
We want students to #DreamBig so our popular career discovery expos feature professional women discussing their career journeys in exciting careers like skilled trades, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), emergency response, entrepreneurship, and leadership. Education partners break down the options for experiential learning in high school and post-secondary programs, and employers offer insight on what they look for in future hires.
These events are engaging, interactive, and packed with resources to set young women up for success in the workforce.
If you want to attract more young women to your tech classes and improve their knowledge of co-op and youth apprenticeship, contact us today for availability!
Build a Dream offers educators new ways to encourage and engage with students one might not usually be able to connect with.
Young women may avoid careers where they think they will be challenged or if they have not seen other women in these roles. Build a Dream workshops work to highlight women working in rewarding careers in various industries, and offer tasks to build skills while empowering and boosting confidence.
Having troubles attracting women to your tech and co-op programs? Build a Dream workshops help educators gain valuable insight to improve recruitment and retention.
Closing the gender gap across workspaces begins with education. Build a Dream offers a variety of classroom-ready products to help schools combat gender stereotypes.
