Total Service Hours
buildOn partners with eight schools throughout the Bronx, serving communities where youth face issue ranging from gang violence to food insecurity and homelessness. New York’s buildOn students are working to improve their neighborhoods by mentoring children with special needs, leading neighborhood beautification projects, and tutoring children at local elementary schools. They’re also combating hunger: serving at soup kitchens and food banks in neighborhoods where nearly half of all residents live below the poverty line.
“When I serve with buildOn, like when we tutor little kids at the library, I know some of them are going through stuff like I did. I want to help them, help them not to feel like I did. I realized that as part of buildOn I can help others in this way.”
