Review for BUILD, Redwood City, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was first introduce to BUILD in 2009 and immediately fell in love with the kids and the program. In 2011 I chaired their first Gala and joined the National Board this past June. BUILD is a perfect non-profit for those of us looking to connect our entrepreneurial passions with helping kids make a better life for themselves and their families.

When you see a freshman team present at the Business Plan Competition it is mind boggling that just months before many of these kids were failing or at risk for dropping our of school.

Wave a wand and give them enough funds to open a BUILD site in every city in America.

Role:  Volunteer & The BUILD Gala event chair in 2011 and 2012, National Board Member.
