Community Spotlight: M.A.G.I.C. Camp
Stafford Builders and Consultants tip our hard hats to M.A.G.I.C. Camp, Mentoring A Girl In Construction. The camp’s director, Renee Conner, is a construction worker who runs her own firm and hopes to encourage an interest in construction among the female students of Bibb County School District.
This summer, Bibb County School District and Renee Conner hosted a five-day camp for Bibb County high school girls. The camp aimed to show girls opportunities in careers they may not otherwise have considered; women occupy only eight percent of construction jobs, even though on average construction jobs pay more than hairdressing and other trades girls may traditionally consider.
Over the five days of the summer camp, these students worked on daily projects to learn about construction safety, teamwork, and skills including welding, carpentry, and electrical jobs.
We applaud Ms. Conner and the Bibb County School District for making this program available to the young women in our community, and look forward to meeting some of its graduates when they apply for jobs with us here at Stafford Builders!
