WRDC’s Educational Resource Centre (ERC) offers a series of practical, hands-on career exploration programs, creating awareness of the exciting opportunities in trades and STEM, and empowering girls with the information and self-confidence needed to pursue these careers.
Ensuring that girls have the knowledge and resources needed to pursue any educational or career path they wish is critical. All STEM for GIRLS programs engage girls in hands-on interactive learning activities, provide opportunities to hear from real female role models, and instill the confidence required to make informed career choices.
Our educators work in collaboration with the Newfoundland and Labrador English School District (NLESD), Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, public and private post-secondary education institutions, industry, and community organizations to provide girls and young women with practical experience and information regarding training and careers in skilled trades and technology. Formal feedback methods and external evaluations indicate that ERC programs have been highly successful inspiring girls to consider STEM and trades related training and employment.
STEMforGIRLS Programs are free of charge for youth who identify as female* residing in Newfoundland and Labrador with thanks to our sponsors as listed below.
