BUILD’s mission is to use entrepreneurship to ignite the potential of youth in under-resourced communities and propel them to high school, college and career success.
In BUILD, students develop their own business ideas, write business plans, pitch to funders, and launch real businesses. This real-world business experience makes school relevant and motivates disengaged youth to succeed. To help them become college-eligible, students also receive tutoring, test prep, academic support and advising for their school-work and college planning. Entrepreneurship is the hook—but college is the goal. Over, 95% of BUILD seniors have been accepted to college, with over 80% accepted to four-year colleges and universities.
