BUILD's mission is to use entrepreneurship to ignite the potential of youth from under-resourced communities and propel them to high school, college & career success.
What We Do
BUILD offers a comprehensive, 4-year entrepreneurship-based experiential learning program to high school students most at risk of dropping out or under-performing in school. During this program, students start and run their own businesses, and in the process learn value academic success skills as well as executive functioning skills that lead to their success in school, college and career.
Currently, BUILD serves over 1,400 students in the San Francisco Bay Area, Boston, Washington, D.C., and New York City.
