Back to School 2022

unCommon Construction

“If we want to prepare kids for the real world, we need to give them an education that actually happens in it.”

That’s the founder of this incredible New Orleans-based nonprofit, which takes kids out of the classroom and puts them onto a construction site. High school students learn skills like critical thinking, communication, and responsibility – setting them up for success for the rest of their lives. With the support of Stand Together Foundation, unCommon Construction is now scaling its unique program to Minneapolis, MN.
