Building a Better
Back to School

Help Us Build

This back to school season, what are students in the world’s most under-resourced communities going back to?

U.S. students face overcrowded schools with overburdened teachers and poverty and violence in their communities. In developing countries, students walk miles to learn in crumbling huts – if they have a school at all.

Help us build a Better Back to School.

buildOn empowers students from some of the toughest U.S. high schools to transform their communities through service and fight for education by building schools in the world’s economically poorest countries.
