Get Involved with BUILD


BUILD Boston is part of a national organization with programs in Oakland and Redwood City, Washington, D.C., and New York City.

BUILD envisions a world where our educational system ensures all students, regardless of background, have the opportunity to develop the skills necessary for personal and professional success.

Through entrepreneurship-based, experiential learning, BUILD ignites the potential of youth in under-resourced communities and equips them for high school, college and career success.

Join the Movement.


Each year, BUILD recruits and empowers hundreds of volunteers with diverse experiences, backgrounds, and perspectives to support college access and youth entrepreneurship. We have a range of opportunities to accommodate your schedule and fully leverage the generosity of your time and talent. Volunteers choose from weekly, monthly or once-a-year commitments.

To get more information about volunteering in Boston, please sign up here.  To volunteer in one of our other locations, please go here.


One of our students put it best: “BUILD is like a really great company stock. When you invest in it, you get something great out of it.”  97% of BUILD students graduate high school and 95% are accepted to college.  Ignite youth potential by donating to BUILD here.
