Mission Statement


BUILD uses entrepreneurship to propel disconnected, low-income youth through high school to college success.

Description


BUILD is an exciting 4-year college prep program that uses entrepreneurship to motivate disengaged students to excel academically, graduate from high school, and attend college. This real-world business experience makes school relevant and motivates them to succeed. To help them become college-eligible, students also receive tutoring, test prep, mentoring, and advising for their school-work and college planning. Business is the hook—but college is the goal. 100% of BUILD seniors have been accepted to college, with 91% accepted to 4 year colleges and universities.
