buildOn’s service learning programs mobilize students in challenging urban areas to lift up their communities through intensive local service. We run service programs at 40 high schools in six US regions: Chicago, Detroit, New York, the Bay Area, Boston and Bridgeport, CT.

buildOn works in some of the poorest countries on the planet to build schools in villages that have historically had no adequate school structure.
To date we have built more than 1,351 schools in seven countries: Burkina Faso, Haiti, Mali, Malawi, Nepal, Nicaragua and Senegal.
