BUILD Boston’s objective is to use entrepreneurship to ignite the potential of youth from under-resourced communities and propel them to high school, college, and career success. Students in BUILD start real businesses where they learn 21st century skills with the help of mentors from surrounding communities. Mentors support students in developing, launching and running these businesses and the year culminates with a Shark Tank like event where our top teams compete for a grand prize! Our mentors develop meaningful relationships with students, help students explore college and career paths at weekly sessions, work together to develop and strengthen skills and empower students to take charge of their education, careers and life.
