Texas & Louisiana On the Scene: April 2019

  • News

On Feb. 27, the Construction & Maintenance Education Foundation (CMEF), the educational affiliate of Associated Builders and Contractors of Greater Houston, partnered with local construction industry professionals for the 2019 Girls Construction Camp at CMEF’s Performance Verification Center. Since 2016, the camp has provided girls with career awareness and experience in the construction industry, with the hope that some of them may ultimately consider a career in construction.

Most of the volunteers who led the various sessions were women who work in the construction industry.

Thirty-two eighth-grade girls spent the day participating in numerous hands-on skills, including carpentry, drywall installation (pictured) and finishing, equipment operations, scaffold building and pipefitting. The students represented four independent school districts and nine intermediate high schools. They were selected from within the school districts that CMEF sponsors.
