Capacity Building

Capacity BUILDing involves working with our administrative staff. This involves contributing to our IT department, development, working with our manager of operations, the business office and more. Your help contributes to the overall operations of BUILD.


Group volunteers may come to BUILD Headquarters to work on a service project provided by the Volunteer Coordinator. We host several groups such as corporate college and high school groups, out of state groups, mission groups and more. In the past volunteers have helped us with a painting project, organizing, special events and maintenance.


Volunteers may contribute to our youth program by being a mentor. This can involve helping with our jewelry making club, summer camps and workshops, tutoring, intervention services and much more.
