How does
LEARN work?

LEARN’s foundation is the Construction Craft Labor Trade (CCL). Here’s how it works:

  • Students participate in real-life, job-related activities and industry projects
  • Core academic principles are integrated into every activity and project: Math, Science, and English
  • Trade-specific knowledge increases each year as students take part in simulated job-site tasks
Tools For A Successful Career

Keys to success

LEARN’s foundation is the CCL Trade. Students participate in vocational activities and industry-related projects while emphasizing associated core academic principles like math, science, and English. To help develop trade-specific knowledge, students take part in group and individual activities that simulate jobsite tasks. These activities encourage and promote safety, craftsmanship, critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork, and leadership.

Success Stories

“I’ve worked on curriculum committees, common core state standards for the last 20 years in English...and your curriculum is the best curriculum I’ve ever seen”

“I can show students trigonometry on a piece of plywood; why you need it, how you are going to use it… when they see those aspects coming together then the light comes on. The students understand the importance of this”

“Honestly, it’s my favorite thing about coming to school. I learn how to do things with my hands, I’m building things, I’m learning measurements… things that I can use and incorporate into my real life.”

“4 years ago we were making bird houses – now we’re building forms, building scaffold… doing all of the things that labor entails on a construction site… it’s a true testament to “hands on” integrated learning. That would be impossible if it wasn’t for the partnerships with LIUNA Training, LiUNA and their labor leaders”
