This summer, in collaboration with One Summer Chicago and After School Matters, BUILD hired over 200 teens into good-paying, virtual summer jobs. Youth were engaged in programs covering civic engagement, gardening, cooking, jewelry-making and entrepreneurship, performing arts, digital media, and journalism. We may not have been allowed to come together in person, but our extraordinary young people built a virtual community of learning and achievement, and created many amazing projects we are proud to showcase on this page for you.
From podcasts to videos to magazines, take a minute to hear from Chicago’s next generation! https://www.buildchicago.org/summer-showcase-2020/
