unCommon Construction

Aaron Frumin is the Founder and Executive Director of unCommon Construction - a New Orleans-based nonprofit that uses the build process to empower youth to lead the workforce. Through unCommon's apprenticeship program, high school students apply to join a diverse team to earn hourly pay and school credit for building a house together. With the revenue from each project, unCommon matches apprentices' earnings with an Equity Award Scholarship for further education and career opportunities. Since its founding, unCommon has hired more than 200 students who have collectively earned more than $250,000 in pay and scholarships and begun its expansion to new locations nationwide.
