Women Build Ambassador: Tara Nelson

I’ve been part of Women Build for five years now and my favourite part about it is the solidarity between all of the women that are out on the work site.

I love to see new women coming every year. You don’t need to know anything about building because you’ll learn it all on the job site. You’ll have mentors teaching you not only about the organization, but how to put a house together, and it’s so empowering.

It is a hard day’s work! You’ll leave tired at the end of the day, but it’s so emotionally fulfilling that I would encourage anybody to do it.


I would be invisible. There would be something amazing about being the fly on the wall, hovering in and out of situations to determine what people need, and then being able to help them later without them even knowing.

Every woman has the power to change the world. Register for Women Build YYC today.
