Expanding your Horizons is a career exploration day for girls ages 5-9 on Saturday November 14, 2020 at Girls Inc at the YWCA’s Zonta House (401 Douglas St.) from 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM.
Expanding Your Horizons is organized by Girls Inc. at the YWCA where participants will attend hands-on workshops about a variety of topics throughout the day and a group activity to close the day.
This event aims to (1) spark the spirit, trigger the imagination and encourage girls to know about exciting career opportunities; (2) increase a girl’s interest in math, science and technology; (3) provide girls with opportunities to meet and form personal contacts with women working in non- traditional fields; and (4) provide hands-on learning about careers in a format that is committed to benefiting girls of all ethnicities, races, religions, abilities, and backgrounds.
