Review for BUILD, Redwood City, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I've tutored at BUILD for 3 academic years and am just starting a 4th year. I tutor at-risk youth in math & science for about 1.5 hrs/week. Definitely hard at times to get the kids engaged, but I've had many positive experiences tutoring kids there.

There is also a really cool business side to BUILD. The kids form teams and start small businesses. I've never personally gotten involved in that, but I love going to the business sales events and seeing how proud the kids are of what their businesses do.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

helping kids become the first in their family to go to a 4-year college.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make sure tutors get to work with the same kids every week.

Role:  Volunteer & tutor at-risk HS youth.
