rosie’s girls

where confident girls grow into powerful women

Alize joined Rosie’s Girls to do things she had never done before, learning everything from welding and carpentry to tackling new challenges.

“When I think of Rosie, I feel pride,” said Alize.

Each summer, Richmond‘s Rosie’s Girls helps middle school teens from low-income families build job skills, explore their hopes and dreams, and expand their horizons.

Aside from gaining skills in nontraditional careers, Rosie’s Girls helps Alize and girls like her build self-confidence by promoting female empowerment and equal opportunity that WWII-era icon “Rosie the Riveter” embodies.

The program is a link to Richmond’s proud history and “WWII-era spirit in which everyone pitched in to achieve a common good.”

Today, the next generation of Rosie’s Girls is inspiring Richmond youth to take on a similar “We Can Do It” attitude.

Ask Alize about her experience, and she’ll tell you it gave her more confidence and pride: “Someday I’m going to run a company. Because I’ve learned there’s not much I can’t do.”

At Chevron, we know that confident girls grow up to be powerful women. That’s why we are proud to support Rosie’s Girls.
