Mentor Young Entrepreneurs with BUILD Boston


Mentor BUILD students and shape the future leaders of Boston. Create the type of community you want to live in.

Boston high school students are launching their own businesses and they need you!


Invest in the next leaders of Boston by signing up to be a mentor. Mentors work with their BUILD team to develop and strengthen skills like communication, collaboration, innovation and grit as well as empowering BUILD students to take charge of their education, careers, and life.


Mentoring takes place weekly at our partner schools during the early afternoon. Use your lunch hour to make a difference in a young person’s life while connecting with other like-minded professionals in Boston.
