Interested in learning, asking questions and problem solving?

Do you want to help people and make a difference in the world?

Guess what?  YOU can!

If you are interested in getting involved with our Transportation YOU Program, or would like our Chapter to create a hands-on program for girls between the ages of 13-18, please contact Karen King, Transportation YOU Coordinator.

 

This hands-on interactive mentoring program offers young women an introduction to a wide variety of careers in transportation.

WTS Chapters are using this opportunity to make a difference in the lives of young women by offereing activities that explain opportunities in all modes of transportation and encourage courses in math, science and technology - the "stepping stones" to exciting careers in the transportation industry.

2014 EVENT A HUGE SUCCESS!

The WTS Central Virginia Transportation You event held April 10, 2014 at the Science Museum was a huge success.  The chapter coordinated with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA-Richmond Field Office), Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), and Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) to hold a “Girls in Transportation” workshop. The workshop was designed to incorporate interactive working sessions that introduced young women to specialized areas of transportation careers through information sessions led by women who are leaders in Virginia’s Transportation Industry and included a trolley tour focusing on the rich transportation history of Richmond.  The team leaders who were key speakers at each session were very effective in their presentations and hands on interactive working sessions which provided detailed elements required for transportation projects in Virginia.
