Description

The BUILD Model facilitates our most intensive work with youth to develop personal competencies, strengthen commitment to education and community service, and develop stable, productive members and leaders in their communities. Implementation of The BUILD Model begins with identification of youth who may be gang affiliated, delinquent, and/or encountering risk factors including gangs, violence, substance abuse, truancy, poor academic performance, or other negative influences that stem from their schools and communities. These youth are recruited and/or referred in the schools and on the streets to BUILD Core Groups, where they are engaged in activities designed to reduce risk-taking behaviors, set and reach educational and career goals, promote positive impact on peers, and encourage school retention and college/career prep.

BUILD's mission is to engage at-risk youth in the schools and on the streets so they can realize their educational and career potential and contribute to the stability, safety and well being of our communities
