BE A MENTOR.

CONNECT. ENGAGE. EMPOWER. INVEST IN BOSTON's FUTURE.

Inspire high school entrepreneurs to launch their first business & empower students to take charge of their education, careers and life.

BUILD mentors inspire high school students who are at-risk for dropping out of high school to start & run real businesses and aspire to college success. Help us to BUILD the entrepreneurs and professionals of tomorrow!

OUR MENTORS SAY:

"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
