BUILD’s mission is to provide real-world entrepreneurial experience that empowers youth from under-resourced communities to excel in education, lead in their communities, and succeed professionally. By supporting students in developing and actually running their own small businesses, BUILD puts entrepreneurial education far beyond the classroom into a tangible context. BUILD students come from neighborhoods where the high school drop-out rate ranges from 50% to 70%; yet, to date, 100% of BUILD graduates have graduated from high school and enrolled in college. Interested candidates can learn more about the organization at www.build.org.
