Best Apprenticeship Program: Girls Guild

Originally confraternities of craftsmen aligned by a particular art or trade, guilds initially shut women out of their ranks. But not so with Austin's Girls Guild. Think of it as Girls Rock Camp for the art set. Bombastic bursts of apprenticeships and workshops put girls into direct contact with women who are making their way in the world as artists and artisans. It's a great way to build a skill set or spend a Saturday afternoon learning to do something new. By honoring the girls' interests, Girls Guild instills in young women that they're "kind of a big deal" – an overt way of building solidarity and empowerment in the people who will one day define our artistic future.
