The Boston University Initiative for Literacy Development (BUILD), in collaboration with selected schools and community programs, provides extra help to support the development of literacy skills of elementary school children in Boston and Chelsea.

Boston University Work-Study students tutor children in preschool through fifth grade in classrooms, after school programs, and at one area hospital. Their contributions enhance and support the education of children in these target programs and communities.

BUILD is now accepting applications for the 2014-2015 year. The application can be downloaded here and sent by email to BUILD@bu.edu, or a hard copy can be mailed to:
