Girls Construction Academy Success

Learn, Design, and Build

Hosted by Hendricks CareerTek, the two-day Girls Construction Academy held recently was all about empowering young women to learn basic design principles and construction skills. Working together, they learned hands-on skills that they can put to use alongside females who are in the profession. Even more, they learned the essentials of safety, tool usage and the empowerment and sense of pride that comes from seeing something they designed and built with their own hands come to life.

The buddy benches they designed and constructed look amazing! Our thanks to Hendrick CareerTek for offering the program and to CCI associates, Lindsey, Pete, and Lavelle for assisting these incredible young ladies! Check out their creations in a photo slideshow seen HERE.
