Partners in Service

A powerful investment in your community

Our partners play an integral role in our mission to break the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and low expectations. We offer immersive experiences that let your team members serve with us, share their skills, and make a meaningful impact in their community and the world’s economically poorest countries.

buildOn All In

In this student-led immersion experience, business and community leaders spend two days in a buildOn neighborhood and “walk in the shoes” of our U.S. students. Each participant is paired directly with a buildOn student and together they study the challenges facing America’s neighborhoods. Participants will speak with teachers and school administrators about issues facing our students, explore communities with buildOn youth, and most importantly, serve alongside our students as they create the change they wish to see.

Service Immersion

This afternoon-long experience lets you join buildOn youth as they explore the challenges facing their communities and take action to address these issues through service. You’ll get to serve your community and build deeper connections with your colleagues as you come together to serve in solidarity. buildOn students will lead you through their service methodology – IPARD – as you investigate, prepare, act, reflect and demonstrate impactful service to take on the issue you’ve explored together.

Trek is not a vacation—it’s a transformative experience that puts your team on the front lines of the fight against poverty, illiteracy, and low expectations. Through this global service learning opportunity, participants immerse themselves in the local culture and customs of a rural village, live with host families, and engage in service by physically helping to construct a buildOn primary school. The opportunities for growth are enormous as participants learn the value of service and education, while developing a deeper understanding of the world and themselves as leaders and agents of change.
