Girls Learn About Non-Traditional Career Field During MAGIC Camp

Girls Learn About Non-Traditional Career Field During MAGIC Camp

By Daniel Daniels, Bibb County School District Communications Intern

During the week of June 3-7, 25 middle and high school girls participated in a MAGIC, or Mentoring a Girl in Construction, camp held at Southwest High School. Throughout the camp, the girls participated in hands-on construction activities aimed at equipping them with basic carpentry, welding, and electrical skills.

The MAGIC camp at Southwest is one of 25 camps being held across the nation this year. National Executive Director for MAGIC Inc., Renee Conner, said it is important to introduce girls to the construction industry.

The camp is fully funded through sponsorship donations from companies.

For the companies, “it’s about the workforce development," Ms. Connor said. "For the schools, it’s about getting more girls interested in their programming."
