Thank You, Mentors!

We’ve been having so much fun celebrating National Mentoring Month on our social media accounts!  Today is International #ThankYourMentorDay and we are here to say THANK YOU to our amazing crew of mentors for the 2016-2017 school year!


Every year our students tell us that their favorite thing about BUILD is their mentor. Mentors ignite the spark that gets students’ ideas, motivation, confidence, and businesses flowing. Mentors not only guide students through building the products and creating a business plan – they also guide students through the challenges that they face in school, at home, and beyond. We cannot emphasize enough how critical the role of a mentor is, and #ThankYourMentorDay is the perfect day to celebrate that fully!

Thank You Mentors!


Here’s a special shoutout to all of our mentors.  You are integral in growing our students’ confidence and skills as they launch their businesses, and growing their minds and hearts as they launch their bright futures!
