The Greater Birmingham Association of Home Builders (GBAHB) recently partnered with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Alabama to introduce more than 30 children, ranging in age from 12 to 17, to opportunities in the home building industry. Activities for the day included two stations in and around the North Alabama Homebuilding Academy’s traveling trailer, where students participated in hands-on activities to learn plumbing, HVAC, electrical, framing skills, and more.

Students will be provided with additional opportunities to learn about construction throughout the year, including two summer field trips to a construction site and countertop fabrication shop as well as a park bench building activity, the National Association of Home Builders reports.

“This event was incredible,” stated Karen Isaminger, GBAHB workforce development — Boys & Girls Club program chair. “The North Alabama Homebuilding Academy staff did an excellent job talking with the kids and leading them through the activities. The students truly enjoyed the afternoon and learned more about our industry.”
