Update: The registration deadline for Careers in Construction has been extended to Wednesday, September 25, 2019.
Girl Scout Cadettes and Seniors are invited to join GE Johnson Construction Company for “Build Like a Girl: Careers in Construction” on Saturday, September 28, 2019 from 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. at the GJ Johnson Logistics Facility in Colorado Springs! Girls will learn about construction careers, work as a team to build a community library book stand that can be placed in their community, and participate in a behind-the-scenes construction tour at the U.S. Olympic Museum. Cadettes will work on requirements for the “Woodworker” badge and Seniors will work on requirements for the “Social Innovation” badge.
All Girl Scouts will receive a special event patch. Waivers will need to be signed and submitted for each person at the event. Waivers will be emailed directly to all registrants when registration closes.
This is not a drop off event, all Girl Scouts must attend with a parent, guardian, or troop leader. Girl to adult ratios for events should be met. No tagalongs.
Around 2 p.m. the group will need to drive from GE Johnson to the Olympic Museum (130 West Vermijo Ave., Colorado Springs) for the tour. The event will end at the Olympic Museum at 3:30 p.m.
Capacity is 100 Girl Scouts. To secure your t-shirt size and dietary requests, please register before September 12. Registration will officially close when capacity is met OR on September 18. If you register after September 12, we cannot guarantee your t-shirt size or dietary request.
All attendees must be registered Girl Scout members. If girls are attending without their parent, adults attending must be approved volunteers.
