BE A MENTOR. CHANGE A LIFE!

Inspire high school entrepreneurs to launch their first business & get on track to college success!

BUILD is selecting a diverse group of entrepreneurs and professionals to mentor high school student business teams. 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!

AS A BUILD MENTOR YOU WILL:

  • Support students in the creation & launch of their own small businesses
  • Inspire students to get on the path to college
  • Ignite a love for education within disengaged high school students

  • Work alongside like-minded, community-oriented mentors from across the Greater Boston area
  • Receive on-going training and support from the BUILD Staff
  • Make a difference in the lives of at-risk youth!

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
