Women Build Week
Women Build is an event that empowers women to help with housing construction efforts, an area that generally only 15% of volunteers are female. This is a great opportunity to spend a day on the build site while helping to provide a new home to a deserving Partner Family.
No Experience Necessary
Women Build creates an environment in which women feel comfortable learning new skills while building a new home. The event takes place annually during the first full week of May. Projects may include raising walls, raising the roof, insulation, siding, roofing, etc.
If you don’t have any construction skills, don’t worry! Many women come to Women Build sites with no construction skills at all and still make a great impact. Training is provided.
Women Build Week will be held May 8-12, 2017. The build location will be in Midland County. We are seeking both Sponsors Women Build Sponsorships Women Build Sponsorship Form and Volunteers WB Volunteer Form for this event.
