Partners in Service

A powerful investment in your community

We believe the most effective way to counter the poverty and illiteracy crises is by fostering equity and solidarity in our communities through direct service and education. By participating in our immersive service experiences, your team members will have the opportunity to 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 immersive service 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 critical issues affecting our communities. Participants speak with teachers and school administrators about the challenges our students face, explore neighborhoods 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 have the opportunity to give back to 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, as you investigate, prepare, act, reflect, and demonstrate impactful service to take on the issues you’ve identified together.

Trek is not a vacation, but rather, a transformative experience that puts your team on the front lines of the fight against poverty and illiteracy. 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.
