BUILD organizes their work around six areas:

  • Intervention: Conflict mediation, violence interruption, and persistent engagement of gang and justice-involved youth by mentors who have overcome similar obstacles.
  • Prevention: After-school programs to help younger children develop leadership skills, healthy relationships, and positive habits to resist risky behavior.
  • Education: Scholarships, workplace training, and academic support to help youth succeed in high school, prepare for college, and persist through graduation.
  • Enrichment: An array of positive opportunities to cultivate interests, build creativity, and discover talents like music, art, sports, podcasting, entrepreneurship, gardening, tech, and more.
  • Clinical and Community Wellness: Clinical treatment for trauma and mental health includes individual and group therapy, on-call community violence crisis response, case management, and mobile mental health outreach.
  • Community Engagement: Proactive outreach to neighborhoods by walking the streets, building trust, practicing Restorative Justice, and connecting the community to resources to support mental and physical health.
