She Built This City was created by longtime construction executive Demi Knight Clark to empower women & girls in the construction & STEM trades. Help us "bring to life" a dream of need-based scholarships so that 8th grade girls at Sun Valley Middle School can experience a six-month program.
Builder Girls, starting in January 2020, will cover the comprehensive stages of residential construction - from land purchase to architectural planning; clearing & grading; foundations; framing, carpentry & electrical/HVAC; drywall; inspections; plumbing; interior finishes; certificate of occupancy; sales & marketing/finance; and running a business. It will culminate in a "pitch session" to area builders as they "sell" their homes as entrepreneurs!
The cost for each girl, with materials & instruction, equals $400 for 20 participants. Help us inspire a teenager to love a trade - and her future could equal a magnet program in Union County high school! For more info on She Built This City, visit www.SheBuiltThisCity.org.
