Only a handful of girls have had the opportunity to learn how to use power tools safely. Founded by Elaine Hamel and headed by Mel Gosselin, a previous Outstanding Woman in Business winner, Girls at Work empowers girls with tools to overcome adversity and build confidence to face life challenges.
Whether on location or at its shop in Manchester, Girls at Work provides the tools, supplies, instruction and much more. The experience helps girls recognize their capabilities and find excitement in working as part of a team toward a common goal.
