Become a BUILD Mentor - Help youth start their own businesses
- Please forward this call for mentors to your networks!
Change a Life, Transform a Community
Can you remember what inspired you to succeed? Perhaps you had role
models and mentors, people who nurtured you with optimism and
encouragement. Success wasn't a question of "if", but rather "how".
Or, you might come from a background similar to the BUILD students.
You didn't have as much support from schools, friends, or your
community. Yet despite the circumstances, you seized every opportunity
and worked hard to develop your abilities.
Whatever your background, we invite you to apply to become a BUILD
BUILD is a non-profit organization serving East Palo Alto and Oakland
youth. Our mission is to provide real-world entrepreneurial experience
that empowers youth from under-resourced communities to excel in
education, lead in their communities, and succeed professionally. To
date, BUILD has sent 100% of its graduates to college. By working with
BUILD students for just an hour and a half per week, you can transform
a community, one member at a time.
You can contact Nicole Oppenheim at BUILD if you have any questions
