GIRL WITH GRIT PROGRAM
STRONG GIRLS GROW UP TO BE STRONG WOMEN.
The mission of the Girl with Grit Program is to give girls and young women a safe space to grow their skills and confidence through mentors, and experiences that help develop life skills, career paths, and passions.
GWG AUTO LAB
A YOUTH COMMUNITY BUILDS.
Girl with Grit has a bunch of auto loving women on its board. Our auto lab hopes to obtain support for youth to learn everything from sewing to painting to welding to mechanics as it works to ultimately build two vehicles. One, a mobile workshop, outfitted with tools and the other 1934 Chevy Truck.
THE WOMEN BEHIND THE NON-PROFIT.
Girl with Grit was officially started by Blythe Zemel in December of 2020 to get first girls better access to equipment, tools, and mentors. Very quickly, she became aware that all youth in her community needed better access to equipment and a place to learn it. They needed a place to learn how to make things.
Our board includes women from all walks of life. First joining our board was Staci Andrews, Retired Navy and Entrepreneur.
In January, Ashley Robertson, Shop Assistant at ToyMakerz headed down to help pull an engine from our 1934 Chevy Truck and at that time joined our board. ToyMakerz can be seen on History Channel.
Briana Huhn has been a welder/fabricator for 11 years across multiple industries. In addition to welding, Briana shares her love of the trades with children through a Minnesota based nonprofit, Big Ideas Inc. Her main goal is to help end the stigma that the trades are second rate. Her metalworking skills earned her a spot on Motortrend’s ‘Bitchin Bootcamp’ and Discovery Channel’s ‘Monster Garage’…
