The House That She Built Programs are designed to encourage children to be curious about the world around them and the many options they have for their unique path for success. Working with your hands and thinking creatively builds confidence and character and we would love to work with your group to find the perfect program.

All programs incorporate STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math).

All program fees will be used for marketing the book and programs which help spread the message of The House That She Built.
