CBH Homes Promotes Women in Construction in Girls Building Event On Saturday

Boise, Idaho, Oct. 04, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CBH Homes and Girl Scouts of Silver Sage are holding the first ever "The House That She Built" event this Saturday, October 7th, within CBH’s Locale community in South Boise. The House That She Built children’s book by Mollie Elkman educates young readers about the people and skills that go into building a home. Inspired by a true story of an all-women built house in Utah, last year the authors partnered with Girls Scouts of America to create a patch program. 

Mollie Elkman says, “The intent of this patch program is to build self-esteem and develop skills through curiosity and hands-on activities.” CBH Homes is bringing the patch program to a one day event for Girl Scouts. CBH currently has 200 girls registered and they can expect an engaging, hands-on, educational morning. The press are invited to join us in capturing the empowerment and inspiration it offers.

CBH Homes is proud to have a workforce of 70% women and recognizes the importance of encouraging girls to explore diverse career options. 

Ronda Conger, Vice President of CBH Homes, shared her enthusiasm, stating, “At CBH Homes, we're passionate about more than just constructing houses. We're building dreams. We aim to demonstrate to girls that construction is a rewarding and promising career path.”

"The House That She Built" aims to empower girls and young women by immersing them in the world of construction. This interactive event provides participants with a rare opportunity to explore diverse construction job sites at various stages, learn from accomplished women in the construction industry, and actively participate in a mini construction project. Attendees can also look forward to exciting giveaways and a fun lunch, ensuring a memorable experience.

Please be advised that attendance is exclusive to Girl Scout members.
