Transportation YOU

Transportation YOU is a hands-on, interactive, mentoring program that offers young girls ages 13-18 an introduction to a wide variety of transportation careers.

Through the program, WTS chapters work to make a difference in the lives of young girls by offering programs and activities that will spark their interest in all modes of transportation and encourage them to take courses in math, science, and technology, which are the stepping stones to exciting careers that can change the face of the transportation industry.

Transportation YOU DC Summit

In addition to the incredible activities, tours, and mentorships happening at the local WTS chapter level, WTS also offers its flagship Transportation YOU conference--an opportunity for select Transportation YOU participants from across the country and their mentors to gather together to experience once-in-a-lifetime tours, meet-ups with White House administrators, and cool challenges and breakout sessions culminating in a spectacular networking reception.

Every annual Transportation YOU DC Summit offers attendees opportunities to meet college representatives and senior administration officials, including the Secretary of Transportation, explore the White House or the US Capitol, local airports, the DC Metro, and other transportation hubs, experience engineering challenges, professional development programs, and networking events, and learn about college opportunities, core transportation development components, such as accessibility and livable communities, and career planning.
