"Girls at Work, Inc. is more than just teaching girls how to be independent, it a program that helps girls find them selves. This is also a program builds friendships and saves lives, by teaching girls they are capable of what ever they set their minds to!
Thank you, for saving MY LIFE!"

“Girls at Work, Inc. brought a unique team building exercise to our organization that everyone really enjoyed. Our group learned how to work together and succeed even if all the necessary resources are not at their fingertips. And at the end of the day we had four beautiful picnic tables to use for years to come.”

"The warmth of the wood fire, the smell of wood shavings, the sound of laughter… and the hum of POWER TOOLS! We jumped at the chance to try our hands at “building” with Elaine in the Girls at Work shop, sensing from our meeting with her that it would be a great experience. It was that and then some! Elaine and her volunteers have created such a warm, nurturing, welcoming environment. Her easy manner quickly erases any trepidation, anxiety, insecurity or intimidation you might feel in a venue that has often been seen as “off limits” for girls and women. Our entire staff delighted in their creations and are anxious to return for new projects. Clearly, Elaine and [email protected] have created a unique and special thing, providing an opportunity for women of all ages to shine in a way that is often not thought of. Keep up the great work. You are gems!"
"Thank you Girls at Work! When Mary came into your workshop, she was intimidated...and in just a few hours, she was a powerhouse. The self-confidence she gained from taking part in your program took a deep root and has continued to grow in so many areas. And if you ask Mary, she'll just tell you she had so much fun and she knew she could do it all along! Thank you again for the terrific job that you do!"

"This was the third summer that Girls at Work came to build with our girls at Circle camp and, as in years past, it was truly amazing to see the transformation that happens over the course of a day. It's about more than just learning to build, it's about the pride and accomplishment that comes with doing something completely new and inspiring."
— Elizabeth Beeson, Executive Director of the Circle Program
