About

Since 1969, BUILD, Inc. has worked in some of Chicago's toughest neighborhoods giving at-risk youth alternatives to the violence that takes away their positive potential. Applying our model of positive youth development, BUILD seeks to redirect the behavior of gang-affiliated youth and potential gang recruits in order to improve their chances of leading fulfilling lives and to increase the stability and safety of the communities in which they reside.   We have helped more than 80,000 young people lead more productive, happier lives results that have been documented by numerous outside studies. In fact, many former program participants who have gone on to successful careers as attorneys, educators, policemen, firemen, and government employees identify BUILD programming as a key source of their success.   BUILD has been highly effective in offering alternatives to gangs because our programs address the causes of the problem, not just gang activity itself. We have furthered our success by emphasizing leadership development and helping youth develop positive life plans.   Our top priority is to help at-risk youth realize the full extent of their educational and career potential so that they can give back to the communities in which they live.
