Mission Statement

BUILD’s mission is to use entrepreneurship to excite and propel disengaged, low-income students through high school to college success.

Description

BUILD believes the power of student ideas in action drives youth to reach their fullest potential in school and beyond. That’s why we help our students develop their own business ideas, write business plans, pitch to funders and launch real businesses. As they reap the rewards--from keeping their profits to gaining self-confidence--they clearly see the connection between the classroom and career success. And because we know they can and should attend college, students also receive individualized academic support and advising for their school-work and college planning. Entrepreneurship is the hook, but college is the goal.
