Students’ involvement on the worksite provides numerous opportunities to learn key academic skills in math, social studies, digital literacy, and science while developing important life readiness skills such as leadership, teamwork, time management, and accountability.
This resource offers resources for construction staff to use on the worksite as a learning lab, where students develop deeper understanding of academic concepts through hands-on construction training.  In addition, YouthBuild classroom teachers can use these lessons to deepen students' knowledge, interest, and understanding of concepts and skills needed for success on the worksite.
