Dress Code

BUILD enforces a strict dress code at all sites.

Tutors are required to follow the dress codes of the schools and community centers in which they work. Shorts, halter-tops, bare midriffs, ripped or transparent clothing, and exposed undergarments are not permitted.

Tutors need to be acutely aware of the impression they have on children. Wearing neat and clean clothing shows respect for the job as well as the children.

Penalties for dress code violations:

  • First incident: a verbal warning and an official review of the dress code policy.
  • Second incident: a written warning.
  • Third incident: dismissal from the program.

Tutors who wear inappropriate clothing will be sent home for the day without pay.
