Make it Uncommon
UnCommon Construction uses the build process to empower youth with the skills, network, resources, and experience to lead the workforce after high school or college.
Through unCommon's high school apprenticeship program, students from different schools apply to join a diverse team to earn hourly pay and school credit for building a house in a semester.
Upon the sale of each home, apprentices also earn a matching "Equity Award" scholarship for further education, industry certifications or the tools they need for a full-time job. With 100+ hours of experience in a real-world learning environment per semester, apprentices develop skills and relationships that last as long as the house they use to do so.
Through the COVID-19 public health crisis, we're working to continue our services through virtual workshops, promoting DIY projects in their own lives, creating new paid opportunities for apprentices, and helping graduates spend the Equity Awards they've earned. We've also established a $10,000 Emergency Fund to support apprentices and alumni through this and other employment and home life disruptions. In the meantime, we can't wait to get apprentices back on the build site as soon as it's safe to do so.
