Many young girls are unaware that a career in construction can be extremely fun and financially rewarding. The first camp of its kind in the state of Pennsylvania was held by NAWIC Philadelphia during spring break in 2009. MyWIC is designed to give girls real hands-on experience to gain better knowledge of the industry. Girls experience the exhilaration of successfully performing tasks that promote leadership and team-building skills, as well as build self-confidence, self-esteem, and boost their overall self image.
MyWIC is a free, construction industry, day camp for 8th through 12th grade girls in the Philadelphia region. MyWIC is sponsored by the NAWIC Philadelphia Foundation, a 501(C)3 non-profit organization, and various organizations throughout the Philadelphia region.
2020 MyWIC Camp
During the COVID-19 pandemic the volunteers at NAWIC were able to hold the 2020 MyWIC Camp virtually over a 6 week period.
MyWIC participated in a 6-week summer program in partnership with NAWIC Philadelphia Foundation and Girls Inc. of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey.
With the support of a WorkReady grant, twenty 12-14 year old girls gained hands on exposure to architecture, engineering, innovative techniques, program management, estimating, and trade construction along with lessons on leadership and community action, post-secondary readiness, STEM education and healthy decision making.
