buildOn! We are not a charity we are movement!


buildOn's mission is to break the cycle of poverty, illiteracy and low expectations through service and education. In the U.S., buildOn empowers urban youth to transform their neighborhoods through afterschool programs and intensive community service. Our students have contributed more than 1.2 million hours of service to their communities. 94% of buildOn students graduate from high school and attend college. Internationally, buildOn works alongside local communities to build schools in some of the economically poorest countries, including Haiti, Nicaragua, Nepal, Senegal, Malawi, and Mali. We have built more than 590 schools around the world. There are more than 85,000 children, parents and grandparents attending buildOn schools every day. buildOn students travel to these villages to participate in school construction and be immersed in a different culture. They return from the experience empowered to change their own communities and the entire world.
