The acronym B.U.I.L.D. stands for Building Up Important Lives and Dreams.
We are living in what can be argued as the greatest period of time in the history of mankind, yet in many communities across the globe the lack of opportunities and resources creates environments where individuals are forced to fight each other over scraps.
The City of Chicago is has been spotlighted in national and world news for the extremely high number of violent crimes and murders. This image of the city is quickly becoming one that young people are embracing because it is all that many of them know. As residents and elders, it is our job to change this.
In order to do this, we must provide opportunities and create a sense of hope within our youth.
