Breaking the cycle and building leaders
Our impact isn’t what we do for our students and global partners. It’s what they do for themselves, their communities, and our world. buildOn students and global communities have given millions of hours of service and built thousands of schools, as leaders in the fight against poverty, illiteracy and low expectations.

Great Leaders Are Built, Not Born
buildOn students are taught to lead, first by learning to serve. Constructive Leadership is our method of building leaders that inspires solidarity and unleashes courage, resilience, empathy and passion for the possible. And Constructive Leadership is only ignited through service. Whether we’re engaging with U.S. high school students, community members in developing countries, or our corporate partners, we apply this service-first methodology that builds the qualities leaders need for making positive, systemic impact.
