BUILD

Maker Story

BUILDING SUCCESS

To help at-risk high school students reach their potential, first you need to engage them. That’s the focus of BUILD—a program that teaches and motivates kids with real-life entrepreneurship.

Founder Suzanne McKechnie Klahr was teaching entrepreneurship skills to adults in East Palo Alto as a way to close the opportunity gap between the East Palo Alto’s poorer residents and those in affluent Silicon Valley. She began BUILD when a group of students asked to join in. Realizing that entrepreneurship is a powerful vehicle to improve educational performance, she brought together schools and professionals to guide students through creating and running their own businesses.

The results have been profound. In schools that have partnered with BUILD, dropout rates have dropped drastically while graduation and college acceptance rates have improved. With the skills they learn, these students have a newfound appreciation for learning and they are motivated toward future success.
