Girls at Work, Inc. empowers at-risk girls in New Hampshire and throughout New England by teaching them woodworking skills and how to safely use power tools to build with a team of girls. We help them discover their inner power tools of strength and courage, tools that many will need to survive their challenging situations. So many of the girls we work with face neglect, abandonment and abuse in their lives. Our program lifts their spirits and shows them how powerful, strong and smart they really are! http://www.girlswork.org/
