The BUILD BOSTON Story




 
What is BUILD?


OUR MISSION

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. 

OUR PROGRAM

Building a Path Toward Success
How do you provide underserved young people with the resources they need to succeed? At BUILD, we do it by helping our students to start their own small businesses. As they reap the rewards – from keeping the profits to gaining self-confidence – they discover the connection between success in academics and success in life. They become excited to go to college.

BUILD is an in-school and after-school program in 9th through 12th grade, taught by BUILD mentors and on-site teachers at partner public high schools. Students:
  • learn the basics of entrepreneurship while improving academic skills
  • develop a business plan
  • practice their pitches at showcases and business plan competition
  • participate in education field trips to businesses and to colleges
  • prototype and manufacture their original products
  • secure seed capital through a pitch to a Venture Capitalist
  • launch and run their own businesses
  • concentrate on getting accepted to the colleges of their choice
