Vermont Works for Women announced the Trailblazers program for this year, running from March 2 through May 2, 2020. Trailblazers is a training program to prepare women for careers in the trades, focusing on construction, electrical work, and plumbing.
These are historically male-dominated fields and are often higher paid occupations. The Trailblazers program can help women attain better salaries, as jobs in the trades generally pay much more than the minimum wage.
Vermont Works for Women helps women and girls recognize their potential and explore, pursue, and excel in work that leads to economic independence.
Shelburne News was among the media picking up the story.
