You have the power to change the world

City Incite is a Chicago-based, non-profit organization created to help inner-city youth unlock new opportunities, gain leadership skills, and give back to their communities.


Our organization was founded on the belief that young people can achieve valuable life and employment skills if given the right tools. We:

  • See their potential
  • Show them their dreams can be accomplished
  • Empower them with training, confidence and opportunities, so they can uncover their greatness and uplift their communities


To enrich lives by inciting people to work together, develop leaders, and uplift communities.

We Develop Future Leaders

  • Job training
  • Finishing school
  • Exposure to work opportunities
  • Business and life skills

We Strengthen Communities

  • Grow skilled trade employment
  • Improve the image of young adults
  • Beautify and rejuvenate neighborhoods
  • Increase a sense of well-being

We achieve our mission by providing programs that help participants learn employment skills and life skills. We train them for workforce and college readiness through career discovery, hands-on learning, civic engagement, and mentorship.


City Incite’s most well-known program is called B.U.I.L.D. (Building Up Important Lives and Dreams). B.U.I.L.D. has programs in construction, hospitality, tourism and business. Learn more about our programs here.


We offer rehab and construction services to help restore neighborhoods and give people hands-on experience. We also help employers and schools train people in construction, and have programs for employers to help them with employee retention.
