Serving Students in Fall 2017

BUILD: Los Angeles

BUILD will serve 600 students in the 9th grade starting in August 2017.  We will be working with various school partners, including traditional public schools, charter schools and pilot schools.  BUILD relies upon the efforts of many different types of volunteers, including mentors, event panelists, and guest speakers.

If you are interested in helping BUILD to catalyze change and transform young lives, please contact Matt Scelza, Regional Executive Director, at 323-641-5251 or matt@build.org.  To schedule a phone call with Matt, please visit www.calendly.com/mattscelza/15min.
