Let’s educate and empower girls to join the construction industry!

For the past 15 years the Girl Scouts Heart of Central California has been partnering with local construction and design entities for the Under Construction Program. The program has been very successful, however, it is in need of new supporters and volunteers.

The Girl Scouts themselves, this year 16 girls, will be doing the ‘hard labor’ of building the cabin. There are opportunities for volunteering at the camp such as mentoring the girls and introducing them to the Construction industry.  The adult volunteers provide supervision and share stories of their roles in the Construction Industry. There is no ” construction field experience’ criteria in order to be a volunteer.

You may volunteer for half or one full day, or as many days as you wish. Camp Menzies is located near Arnold California and is approximately 3 ½ hrs. from Sacramento. There may be camp sites available at Camp Menzies or offsite campgrounds at nearby State Parks. Please forward this onto any other friends, associates, you think may be interested. For those that will be new volunteers, there is a registration/background check that needs to be done 2 weeks prior to camp. 

For volunteering please contact Casey Gray at casey.gray@girlscoutshcc.org
