Join a buildOn Trek and travel to one of our partner countries to build a school alongside community members. By mobilizing communities in some of the world’s economically poorest countries, we can give children and adults access to a quality education often for the very first time, and build opportunities that will last for generations to come.Get Started

Serve with Your School
buildOn Community Teams are groups of compassionate students united to break the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and low expectations. Through the buildOn Trek experience, your high school or college can immerse in our mission by building schools in solidarity with the community members who will benefit from them. Join us for a week of service, leadership, cultural education, and personal growth.Learn More

Hear It from Members of Our Movement
My team and I were fortunate enough to spend 36 Hours with buildOn to experience firsthand the real challenges our country’s youth face on a daily basis. This program opened Synchrony’s eyes on how to better support youth, community, and more.
“The great thing is that everyone can serve. You can look at your community and think about what’s missing and what needs to be changed. Then you can be that change.”
The best part about these Treks is actually working alongside the communities (to build a school)… it’s so important to them.
