Program Description:
Today, BUILD operates programs in the San Francisco Bay Area, Washington, D.C. and Boston. We partner with 18 schools to serve 900 students. Five BUILD students have been awarded the National Foundation for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) National Youth Entrepreneur of the Year award. Three students have been named Gates Millennium Scholars. Four BUILD Instructors have been named NFTE's Entrepreneurship Teacher of the Year. Suzanne McKechnie Klahr was also inducted into the Ashoka Fellowship in November 2006 and in 2011 was named as a Women's History Month Local Hero by KQED and Wells Fargo Bank. BUILD has been nominated for several awards, including the Fast Company Social Capitalist Award (finalist) and the Manhattan Institute Social Entrepreneurship Award. BUILD has been featured in the media, including CNN, PBS, NPR, San Francisco Chronicle, San Jose Mercury News, Bay Area Business Woman News, the Oakland Tribune, and Palo Alto Weekly News. However, the true measure of BUILD's success lies in our student stories. After all, they're the reason why BUILD exists.
