Policy Priorities of Vermont Students


Vermont Works for Women's Women Can Do career exploration conference returned in person to Vermont Technical College in Randolph this year!  Over 260 high school students from 12 of the 14 counties in Vermont spent the day exploring STEM and trades careers through hands-on activities and getting to know Vermont professionals, employers, and organizations. 

We  love staffing a table at this event because a: the Women Can Do energy and enthusiasm is contagious, and b: it's a chance to listen to and learn from students!

VCW Commissioner Kellie B. Campbell and staff offered a raffle prize of maple syrup to entice students to enter their top public policy priorities to win.  Reproductive rights and harassment and bullying were the top two concerns.

Our Community Based Learning student, Montpelier High School senior Ella Darcy, compiled those student responses and presented the findings at the October VCW meeting.  View Ella's presentation.
