buildOn Chapters Pledge to Raise $1 Million to Build 33 Schools

Last week over 65 leaders from buildOn’s high school and university chapters joined us in Sausalito, California for the 2013 buildOn Chapter Conference.

At the conference, chapter leaders gathered to share their buildOn story, learn how their efforts are helping to end extreme poverty, and gain the leadership skills to grow the buildOn movement on campus. Members also celebrated the completion of the 14 schools across the globe they funded last year. This year, our chapters pledged to raise $1,000,000 to build 33 schools for children without access to education!

Thank you to our guest speakers Uma Maedke, Founder of Spotlight Speaking; Jacob Devaney, Founder and Director of Culture Collective; Mike Spear of Stay Classy; and Catherine Nomura, Director of Business Relations for Strategic Coach for sharing their expertise!
