BUILDING LIVES, BUILDING FUTURES

For 45 years, BUILD has worked in some of Chicago’s toughest neighborhoods to stem the violence that takes away the positive potential  and pride in their communities – and, far too often, the very lives – of our youth. In 1969, BUILD started working with fewer than 200 gang-affiliated teens in one neighborhood and today has grown to serve over 3,000 youth annually in 11 Chicago communities.

BUILD’s programs are designed to meet both the immediate problem of preventing youth from joining gangs as well as working with gang-involved youth to develop alternatives to this destructive lifestyle.
