About

In an effort to increase interest and education in construction and the building trades among young women, UVA Facilities Management will host its fourth annual Girls Day set for 8 a.m.-3 p.m. Thursday, June 13, 2019. Charlottesville area community members are invited to register girls between the ages of 10-16 to participate in various planned activities to show off our work.

We hope to inspire and excite girls to consider a career in construction by offering behind-the-scenes tours of work sites, hands-on activities with our tradespeople and opportunities to hear from our dynamic FM women and what they love about their careers.
