The program, presented by NENAS, engages the female participants to develop skills which are traditionally seen as “male”, in a safe and respectful environment.
Participating girls are exposed to a variety of new skills and possible future career options, which are delivered by qualified instructors.
Interested females must be between the ages of 11-16.
Each group of young females will be challenged to build a working go kart, which will be featured in a community celebration, and will even get fired up for a race.
The program will run from Monday, July 16 until Friday, July 27, with the big race scheduled to take place at the Encana Events Centre June 27.
