Y-Girls STEAM Ahead: Warren

Open to girls entering grades 5-8.

Girls CampYWCA Mahoning Valley Girls’ Camp is a summer program held at our Warren location geared toward girls in middle school and high school. Girls’ Camp aims to address the gender gap in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics by providing resources and workshops to engage girls’ interests in STEM fields and keep them interested for future STEM careers. Girls in the month-long program learn from area women who are leaders in STEM fields; take field trips to regional manufacturers, factories, and labs; and explore STEM through hands-on learning experiences.

Warren’s Girls’ STEAM Camp is generously sponsored by:

  • Chemical Bank
  • The William J. Bruder Trust
  • The Walter E. and Caroline H. Watson Foundation
  • The Kennedy Family Fund, the Arnett Family Fund, and the Seals Family Donor Advised Endowment Fund, component funds of the Community Foundation of the Mahoning Valley
