Great Hearts Initiatives | BUILD Greater Boston

Mission

BUILD uses entrepreneurship to ignite the potential of youth in under-resourced communities and equip them for high school, college, and career success.

BUILD is dedicated to creating a more diverse future workforce by ensuring students in under-resourced communities have access to the mentorship, professional development opportunities, and funding they need to graduate high school, go to college, and launch successful careers. BUILD’s unique “Shark Tank”-style program offers students a four year entrepreneurship experience designed to develop 21st Century Skills and motivate student engagement in school.

Starting in 9th grade, BUILD students work with their peers and mentors to develop business ideas, pitch to funders for seed funding, and launch real businesses. As they journey through high school, BUILD provides students with support in navigating the college application process and the opportunity to explore college and career options, while expanding their businesses or opting into community internships.

BUILD was founded in 1999 in Silicon Valley and now serves students across the country in California, Massachusetts, New York and Washington, D.C. To discover more about this game-changing organization, visit at www.buildinboston.org.

Great Hearts Community Recommendations

"BUILD students always impress me! They go through quite the transformation in this program, but I've seen that by the end of their first year they gain so much confidence and mastery in important skills like communication, collaboration, and problem-solving. So proud to be part of such an innovative and impactful organization." - Pepper Hayes
