Build logo

Though entrepreneurship-based, experiential learning, BUILD ignites the potential of youth from under-resourced communities and equips them for high school, college, and career success. By helping students develop and run their own small businesses, BUILD supplements traditional school with real-world business experiences and critical skill-building for the future. Entrepreneurship is the hook, but college is the goal. BUILD students develop their own business ideas, write business plans, pitch to funders and launch real businesses. As they reap the rewards—from keeping their profits to gaining self-confidence—they clearly see the connection between the classroom and career success. Students also receive individualized academic support and college planning support. Since its founding in 1999, 97% of BUILD’s seniors have graduated from high school and 94% have been accepted into college.
