“Great resources…Information was readily available and organized well…Eye opening to see all career avenues.”

Build a Dream is a grass-roots non-profit dedicated to empowering and educating your daughter(s) about careers in skilled trades, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), emergency response, entrepreneurship, politics and leadership. Our goal is to empower and encourage your child to explore all of the opportunities available to them so that they can make informed decisions about their future.

Our strong network includes education, community partners, and industry to ensure that we deliver the best experience possible in learning about fields where women are under-represented. Through special events, hands-on camps, and our popular career discovery expos, Build a Dream connects your daughter to future employers.

Our programs include:

  • Career Discovery Expos – Join 1,000 parents and their daughters to hear from successful women in a variety of fields, meet local employers to find out what jobs are available in your region, and try hands-on activities. It’s fun, informational, and FREE!
  • Hands-on Learning Camps – Our camps offer unique opportunities to experience jobs that your daughter may have previously overlooked. Try new tools and environments, learn new skills, meet employers and other like-minded peers, and have fun.
  • Dream Makers (Female Mentors) – At expos, our Dream Makers are available to answer questions and offer advice about their careers. Outside of events, you can find great advice from our Dream Maker gallery.
