buildOn is breaking the cycle of poverty, illiteracy and low expectations through service and education. For the past two decades buildOn has mobilized urban youth to lift up their communities and change the world through volunteer service.
In buildOn's afterschool programs across the U.S., urban youth contribute intensive community service tutoring children, feeding the homeless and volunteering at senior citizen homes. buildOn takes these same students, many of whom have rarely traveled outside their own neighborhoods, to some of the poorest countries on the planet to build schools.
buildOn is now running after-school programs in 100 urban high schools across the U.S. where students have contributed nearly 1 million hours of service in their cities. We have also built 466 schools in some of the economically poorest countries on the planet. There are more than 73,000 children, parents and grand-parents attending buildOn schools every day.
