Home Depot Foundation Partners with Girl Scouts to Launch Training Program for Young Women

Girl Scouts participating in Home Depot program

The Home Depot Foundation announced a new strategic partnership with Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) to provide introductory trades, training experience, and career education for young women.

The Home Depot Foundation and GSUSA will host the first-ever joint construction workshops for Cadette, Senior, and Ambassador level Girl Scouts (8th – 12th grades). The program usually launches in the fall and will engage troops throughout Atlanta, Denver, and Houston, providing hands-on experience with carpentry and other building construction trades. These skilled trades workshops will be led by female industry professionals and will offer career guidance and additional education touchpoints for young women seeking trades training opportunities.

To deepen this initiative, The Foundation will extend scholarship opportunities to select high school senior Girl Scouts as part of its recently announced $250,000 Path to Pro scholarship program. This program grants financial assistance to eligible candidates for trade college or postsecondary programs.
