We’re in the New York Times!



We’re in the New York Times!

It’s official – BUILD made it into the New York Times!

Read about our work, from our friend David Bornstein, author of“How to Change the World,” and co-founder of the Solutions Journalism Networkhere.

“When students are given chances to take learning into their own hands, the results can be impressive. That’s been the experience of an educational program called Build, which makes it possible for low-income students, as part of their high school studies, to work in teams, conceiving, testing, and ultimately operating their own small businesses. In the process, they discover — often to their surprise — their potential to deal with unexpected problems, persist through failure, and create something that the world values.”

We are honored and humbled that David chose to profile our work and look forward to bringing the entrepreneurial experience to students in every corner of the nation.
