BUILD is an innovative, college preparatory program. We use entrepreneurship to ignite the potential of youth from under-resourced communities and propel them to high school, college & career success.
Volunteer as a BUILD mentor! BUILD Mentors are placed with a high school student team, coaching them through the process of launching real businesses. This makes school more relevant and fun! Mentors can come from any professional background (entrepreneurship skills are not necessary) - sharing your skill-sets with students inspires them to stay on the path to college success.
Interested in getting involved but can’t mentor weekly? BUILD has one-off and group volunteer opportunities as well. Please email NYCVolunteers@BUILD.org for additional information.
Here are some details on what a mentoring commitment looks like:
- Location: Manhattan, Brooklyn or the Bronx
- Time commitment: 1 hour, once a week (M-Th) (Group options available)
- Session runs: October 2018 - June 2019
- 1 mentors assigned per team (1:4 mentor to student ratio)
- Sites are accessible through public transportation
