      BUILD is seeking a Development Manager for our Bay Area region. Please see the job posting and link to apply below.

      Organization Profile:
      Founded in 1999, BUILD’s mission is to use entrepreneurship to excite and propel disengaged, low-income students through high school to college and career success.  We believe that the power of student ideas in action drives youth to reach their fullest potential in school and beyond.  Our four-year high school program offers a unique blend of entrepreneurship, academics, and personal support that attracts and motivates many students who are otherwise at high risk of failing classes and dropping out of high school and not pursuing post-secondary education.
      Our students develop their own business ideas, write business plans, pitch to funders, and launch real businesses.  This real-world business experience makes school relevant and motivates them to succeed.  To help them become college-eligible, students may also receive individualized academic support and advising for their school-work and college planning.
      BUILD currently serves over 1,100 high school students at programs located in the San Francisco Bay Area; Washington, DC; and Boston, MA.  We are embarking on an ambitious national expansion over the next five to ten years that will see us operating programs in at least a dozen cities reaching thousands more students each year.
      BUILD is made up of a diverse, results driven and passionate team, better known as “BUILDers”, who work tirelessly for the students we serve. We work in a collaborative environment where perseverance, flexibility and an entrepreneurial spirit are encouraged and celebrated. For more information, see: www.build.org.
