What our students are saying


The Skill Set program is such an amazing program, it gives girls the opportunity to learn skills that we wouldn’t be able to learn on our own. It is very empowering to see and work with so many women in a field that is traditionally male oriented. 
The skill set program has given me confidence and a new perspective on what career path I want to pursue. I feel that it has also given me a new creativity in my hobbies. 
 During COVID they took it upon themselves to make up fun activities and projects to keep our minds active. These amazing women are like family to me.



SkillSet is really fun, even if it is hard. I learned how to use tools and make all sorts of really cool things. I would recommend this class to all different ages, even young kids like me. Boys can do it too. One day I would like to be someone who does sculpture like Darcy does. 


The STEAM program is a fun and educational program that inspires you to do things and work hard. When you start something and feel like you can’t finish it, they are there to pump you up and inspire you. It’s a place that boosts your confidence up higher, you start small but end big.
