Is a Construction Site a Classroom?
The nonprofit unCommon Construction offers a unique alternative to your typical internship for high school students.
Its program allows participating students to build a house in a semester, while developing the soft skills necessary for entering the workforce.
The internship for high school students not only pays an hourly rate, but a percentage of the proceeds from each sold house is used to award them with scholarships.
Students learn how to take measurements, read blueprints, and use a variety of tools. They also pick up job-acquisition skills such as communication, responsibility, and critical thinking.
Every student deserves a chance to reach their full potential, and with these valuable internship opportunities for high school students, that’s exactly what unCommon Construction supports.
