CELEBRATING 15 YEARS OF CONSTRUCTION CAMP!

MyWIC = An initiative to create a sustainable labor pool in the construction industry

while exposing young women to careers that they may not have previously considered.

A well-paid, rewarding career doesn't always require a four-year degree.  Many young girls are unaware that a career in construction can be extremely fun and financially rewarding.  MyWIC is a FREE, construction industry, day camp for 7th through 12th grade girls in the Philadelphia region. The camp is designed to give girls hands-on experience to gain better knowledge of the industry and the multiple trades.   

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 sponsored by the NAWIC Philadelphia Foundation, a 501(C)3 non-profit organization,

and various organizations throughout the Philadelphia region.

PLANNING FOR THE 2024 CAMP is underway.
