Approximately 20 Girls from Monaro High School will get the opportunity to try a trade today with the arrival of the SALT Bush Tour.
Supporting and Linking Tradeswomen or SALT has been running workshops over the last two weeks in the region to encourage young women to consider a career in a trade.
The workshops also aim to get local employers thinking about taking on more women as apprentices in industries that are traditionally male dominated.
The workshops are run by experienced tradeswomen, and hope to give young women an idea of what it takes to be a tradeswoman and the myriad of job opportunities available.
