About BUILD

BUILD is a collaborative program drawing on the resources of offices from across Boston University, including Financial Assistance, the Student Employment Office and the School of Education.

BUILD’s mission is to provide elementary school students with more opportunities to be engaged in literacy development through tutoring and literacy-enhancing activities, while providing a meaningful tutoring experience for University students working in public schools and community centers.

As part of BUILD’s 20th anniversary celebration, this short video was produced to highlight the program’s accomplishments and the successful partnership between Boston University and the Boston Public Schools.
