The Latinas Welding Guild is a need-based program focused on creating barrier-less education and the advancement of women in a field that has traditionally been less accessible to them. By providing a safe space to learn the welding skill, scholarships, and language support, we empower our students to take control of their careers as they enter the industry. In order to continue our work, we are seeking partnerships with businesses and organizations that share our values and understand the importance of supporting underserved populations.
