Mentoring for BUILD Boston


“Stepping into the classroom, I feel transformed. I’m no longer an entrepreneur fighting my daily challenges. Some days I’m a coach. Some days I’m a mentor. Some days I’m a drill sergeant. Some days I’m a friend. Every day, I’m rewarded. Being a BUILD mentor has been my most rewarding experience in the last year.”

– Slava Menn, BUILD Mentor & Co-Founder Gotham Bicycle –

The Magic of Mentoring

What if one lunch meeting each week could change a life, including your own? BUILD is seeking fun and caring Mentors to help our high school students launch real businesses.

Mentoring takes place at our partner schools during the early afternoon. Use your lunch hour to help make a difference in a young person’s life while connecting with other like-minded professionals in Boston. Entrepreneurial experience is preferred but NOT required. Training is provided.

To find out if being a BUILD mentor is for you, please complete our online application here.  For more information, please contact Steve Slavsky at sslavsky@build.org
