Program 1

BUILD Programs

Since 1969, BUILD has focused our efforts and resources on Chicago’s most violent neighborhoods in order to change the status quo that has already taken too many young lives. We accomplish our mission through violence prevention/intervention, youth development, and coalition building. Over the years, we have taken the best elements of our program experience and created THE BUILD MODEL.

THE BUILD MODEL -- Prevention, Intervention, and BUILDing Futures (college/career prep & youth leadership development) -- provides best-practice services that enable youth to reduce risk-taking behaviors, develop personal competencies, and strengthen their commitment to education and community service. BUILD offers positive alternatives to the gangs, violence and drugs that surround youth, assisting them to transition from being “at risk” to “at hope” by providing coordinated services that assess youths’ needs, identify their assets, and involve them in our programs and refer them to our community partners. Our services range from one-time violence interventions to intensive, ongoing work with youth. All interactions are geared to empower youth to take charge of their own lives, their own futures!
