Mission Statement

Girls at Work, Inc. is a New Hampshire non-profit organization that empowers girls with the tools to overcome adversity and build confidence to face current and future life challenges. We do this through an experiential program that gives power tools to girls in order to build tangible products. We teach girls woodworking, design and carpentry skills to challenge their minds and lift their spirits. Girls at Work promotes physical, intellectual and social-emotional development through a challenging and supportive atmosphere in after school programs, summer camps and woodworking workshops held at the organization's shop and 'on the road' at programs throughout New England.

Description

Girls at Work seeks grant funding and donations to support the afterschool programs, camps for Title I Schools in Manchester and lower cost for other nonprofits who benefit from these services. Recent funding cuts are making it incredibly difficult to provide programs like ours to those who need it most. Please support us by making a donation to Girls at Work; put a power tool in the hands of a young girl and watch her soar!

Girls at Work Founder Elaine Hamel,"Girls at Work, Inc. began in 2000 out of the back of my pickup truck. This effort is the result of a lifetime of observation, and a desire to share with others the sense of accomplishment you can have when you build something with your own two hands. Girls are faced with far too many obstacles that keep them from discovering their abilities that lie within. We reach them by providing them with the tools to overcome their fear not only building a project but building confidence. Placing a power tool in the hands of a young girl takes empowerment to an all new level!"
