IS THE SPARK.
We help students become the CEO of their own lives!
BUILD ignites the power of youth in under-resourced communities to build Career success, Entrepreneurial mindsets, and Opportunity.
A student’s opportunity is too often limited by their zip code, race and class.
We connect our young entrepreneurs to a network of volunteer mentors from the business world who help build a path toward accessible opportunities and achievement.
