This paper will discuss a curriculum, an introduction to construction fundamentals, that was built for continuation schools. A continuation school is a school for at-risk youth in which it provides programs of empowering, inspiration and outlet. Five modules were created that focus on different sections of the construction industry. These modules consist of Site Safety, Untroduction to Basic Math, Introduction to Power Tools, Introduction to Construction Drawings, and Basic Employable Skills. Each module will consist of a ten-question quiz and presentation. Two homework assignments were also created. One homework assignment for site safety which requires students to identify if the provided image looks safe or not and to explain why. The second homework assignment for the employable skills module which requires students to create a well-organized resume. Through these modules students will have the ability to learn from different sections of the construction industry and apply the learning objectives. Students will be provided a perspective of the construction industry and be inspired to pursue a career/future within this sector. Even if the students do not decide to go into the construction industry, they will still basic construction skills and professionalism.
