Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

Through entrepreneurship-based, experiential learning, BUILD ignites the potential of youth in under-resourced communities and equips them for high school, college and career success.

Each year, more than 500,000 students drop out of high school. Countless others remain disengaged in school, leaving too many students unprepared for success in the 21st Century.

BUILD will enhance the education of students by leveraging our expertise in entrepreneurship and experiential learning to decrease drop-out rates and increase student engagement and learning, leading more students to finish high school prepared for future success.

All BUILD students come up with and pitch business ideas to venture capitalists and use seed-funding to launch licensed business. Through this process students hone an entrepreneurial skillset focused on collaboration, communication, problem-solving, innovation, grit, and self-management, that they can apply to find success in high school, college, their future careers, and other areas of their lives.
