WHAT IS GIRLS BUILD?
Girls Build is a complete, ready-to-use curriculum for educators and youth leaders of girls ages 10 to 12. At this age, children move beyond simple acceptance of their surroundings and begin to develop an awareness of the circumstances that impact their lives. The Girls Build curriculum won an American Inhouse Design award because its layout is easy to follow, teach, implement and replicate.

The program kits teach girls

  • The importance of getting involved in their local communities.
  • The reality of poverty housing.
  • How Habitat works to build homes with partner families.
  • The benefits of homeownership and safe neighborhoods.
