Let’s Build Construction Camp for Girls will host an advanced camp July 27-31 for young ladies that have been with the organization for multiple years. The advanced camp was created as an opportunity to immerse the campers into the entire process of designing and building a project. Partnering with Habitat for Humanity of the Lehigh Valley, this project also became a valuable fundraiser bid item during their “Toast For Hope” fundraising event.
Since January, the advanced campers have worked with the winning bidder and SCF Architecture to identify the client’s needs, research shed and material options, and incorporate these into the final design which will culminate in the building of the shed in July.
Due to circumstances beyond the control of Let’s Build, our traditional camp is postponed for 2020. Registrants for camp will be invited to visit the advanced camp build in July. In addition, Let’s Build is developing a series of virtual content that will be released on our social media platforms and www.letsbuildcamp.com for girls of all ages from across the country to participate in.
Let’s Build plans to host live jobsite walk-throughs, short tool talks and instructional videos, Q&A sessions with women in the industry, technology demonstrations, and even a mini Let’s Build video showcase for young girls to show their summer creations. More information will be coming soon.
Beyond camp, Jon Lattin, CSI, CCPR and Kristen Fallon from ABC Eastern PA will be presenting “Innovative Workforce Development: Collaborative Partnerships Addressing Diversity & Inclusion with Gen Z” at the National Institute of Building Sciences Building Innovation, Virtual Edition.
