Mission Statement:

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

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

It’s critical to reach young people in high school. This is where they can go one way or the other: they can get attention and succeed, or they can get ignored and end up on the wrong path.

Our program provides students with attention and motivation, which inspires a new-found love of learning. So much so that 100% of BUILD graduates have graduated from high school and enrolled in college. Most importantly, as students prosper, the entire community benefits. Students not only become role models, they give back, becoming leaders and improving their communities.
