EVENT: BUILD Up
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2017
BUILD uses entrepreneurship-based, experiential learning to empower high school students from under-resourced communities by developing skills critical to high school, college and career success. Our aim is to close the opportunity gap and ignite the potential of youth. Today, BUILD serves 1,950 students in the San Francisco Bay Area, Boston, New York City and Washington, DC. BUILD will open in Los Angeles in 2017. Since 2012, 96% of BUILD seniors have graduated from high school on time, and 98% have been accepted to college.
BUILD Up Overview
BUILD Up is a peer-to-peer online fundraiser led by BUILD volunteers and mentors. In this campaign, mentors are not the donors but the fundraisers. This campaign is one of our main responses to those requests. We are very grateful to have such amazing supporters, mentors and volunteers!
