  • buildOn is a not-for-profit organization working to break the cycle of poverty, illiteracy and low expectations through service and education.  We’re not a charity, we’re a movement.  In the United States, we run intensive service learning programs in under-resourced, urban high schools in six major cities. Through these programs, buildOn empowers youth to transform their communities through high-impact service. Over the last 27 years, buildOn has empowered more than 100,000 urban youth to contribute more than 2.1 million hours of service that has touched the lives of more than one million people living below the U.S. poverty line. Moreover, 97% of buildOn students graduate high school, and most go on to college.

    Globally, teams of students from buildOn programs fan out across the world to help build schools in the economically poorest countries on the planet. We have now built nearly 1500 schools in Haiti, Nicaragua, Mali, Burkina Faso, Senegal, Malawi and Nepal. More than 2.1 million children, parents and grandparents have attended these schools so far, while more than 185,000 attend buildOn schools every day. At least, 50% of these buildOn students are girls or women.  Most importantly, community members have organized leadership committees and contributed more than 2.1 million volunteer work days to building their schools.

    We hope you’ll consider joining our team!
