Review for BUILD, Redwood City, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

BUILD uses entrepreneurship as a way to re-engage students that many others would leave behind. As a volunteer with the students, I have felt well trained and supported. I have also felt that BUILD is very organized and well run - like a successful corporation. The staff is professional and helpful and the students (although a more difficult population to work with then other college programs serve) truly are transformed. I am very excited to see BUILD scaling to new communities - the program (I have been involved for 4 years) just keeps getting better and better.

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

Watching students involved with BUILD get excited about the business component and then start to see how business makes school real for them -- and then be more excited about school, college and beyond.

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

like to see them have more resources for space for the students. There seem to be more students who wish to be in the program than they have the resources to serve.
