WHY BUILD?

BUILD helps students become the CEO of their own lives

PROBLEM

A student's opportunity is too often limited by their zip code, race and class.

Our education system does not prepare students for our 21st Century workforce.

VISION

A world where all students—regardless of race, socioeconomic status, or neighborhood—have the opportunity to develop the skills needed for personal and professional success in the 21st-century economy 

MISSION

Use entrepreneurship to ignite the potential of youth from under-resourced communities and propel them to high school, college & career success
