We hope you will consider supporting BUILD NYC this year as we seek to bridge communities and develop a diverse pipeline of talented young people equipped with the skills and confidence to succeed in the 21st Century workforce.
In its fourth year in New York, BUILD is serving over 400 high school students at six partner schools in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan and Staten Island.
BUILD’s proven, national four-year program model provides hands-on learning, by empowering students to run their own businesses. BUILD supplements traditional classroom instruction with real-world experiences and the development of critical 21st-century skills. As the applicability of school to the outside world becomes clear, and as students grow in knowledge and self-confidence, BUILD stimulates their motivation and challenges them to set high expectations for themselves. BUILD students transition to college or other post-secondary options with the skills needed to persist in higher education and to be successful in achieving their long-term career goals.
