What's The Difference?

Cultural Identity

At BUILD, we have a diverse population. This month and always, we celebrate our 506 students, 7 mentors, and 3 teachers that identify as Hispanic or Latinx. To spotlight our pride, here are some quotes from our incredible Alumni, sharing how they feel about their cultural identities.

BUILD Design Challenge

In our BUILD Design Challenge, students solve for different clients of diverse backgrounds and heritages. Three of our amazing Alumni are featured clients that identify as LatinX or Hispanic. During the challenge, students across the country will solve this challenge question: “How might we develop entrepreneurial solutions to everyday challenges for people in our schools and communities?”  Click here for more information about the challenge. Get to know a few of this year’s clients Arturo, Marianny, and Sixto!
