NAHB teamed up with The Boys & Girls Clubs of America in 2022 to introduce more of America’s youth to a future career in residential construction. Since the partnership’s inception, local and state home builders’ associations (HBAs) across the country have collaborated with their local clubs to provide enriching construction-related activities.
In 2024, NAHB will award $2,400 to 20 local and state HBAs committed to working with a local Boys & Girls Club to execute careers in construction programming. All state and local HBAs in good standing with NAHB are encouraged to apply. HBAs do not need an existing relationship with a Boys & Girls Club to be eligible for funding.
All applicants must complete four careers in construction-oriented activities or events in the 2024 calendar year. In addition to the activities, HBAs who receive funding must commit to updating NAHB and participating in webinars throughout the year.
NAHB is currently accepting applications. The application deadline is Nov. 15. Visit the Boys & Girls Partnership page for more information about eligibility, partnership requirements and how to apply.
