Coastal Pines Technical College Sponsors "This Girl Can" Workshop

Students Working in the Welding Lab

The Golden Isles College and Career Academy (GICCA) recently hosted the inaugural “This Girl Can” workshop at its facility. Coastal Pines Technical College and the Golden Isles Development Authority were sponsors of the workshop.

This Girl Can was offered to eighth and ninth grade girls who were interested in exploring non-traditional careers. This workshop was hosted by GICCA over a three-night series where female students could bring a female mentor to assist and participate in the workshop. The first night of the workshop, participants were schooled on safety and began learning how to use tools in the welding lab. The second night, participants began working on their project, a windchime. The third and final night there was a panel of industry professional women who spoke to the students about being a woman in a non-traditional career field and learn about the manufacturing industry and the many occupations available.
