Toolbox  is a program designed to encourage and build healthy relationships between girls, gender nonconforming youth, and boys, and to challenge gender stereotypes. Our aim is to support the development of self sufficiency and confidence: experiences that we, as members of Toolbox, had when we first learned to work with our hands. The program is led by the women identifying folks such as myself. After learning various skills such as woodworking and electronics, participants design and build their own project with our assistance.
