BUILD is an awesome organization that I’ve volunteered with for the last couple of years, and it’s been a blast.  Essentially, the organization is an after school program for high school kids in “under resourced communities.”  It’s a four year program where the kids come up with an idea for a business, develop a business plan, and even put the plan into action with funding from Venture Capitalists who work with BUILD.  The last two years of the program is focused on applying for college, and thusfar 100% of all BUILD graduates have gotten into college!
