B.U.I.L.D.

 

B.U.I.L.D. stands for Building Up Important Lives and Dreams.

 

B.U.I.L.D. is a 9-month, career-training program that helps prepare young people for careers. You must be 16-24 to participate. If you haven’t finished high school or aren’t sure what job you want, this could be for you.

 

If you participate in B.U.I.L.D.:

  • You’ll receive hands-on experience in construction, hospitality, transportation or business.
  • You’ll also learn professional and personal development skills needed to succeed such as handling finances and community responsibility.
  • You’ll hear inspiring stories from others like you who have become successful in their careers despite the obstacles they faced.
  • You’ll receive nationally-recognized, industry certification credentials.

 

At the end of the program, you’ll have the opportunity to get a job or paid apprenticeship. You can immediately start making livable wages. You may also be able to afford college while working.

 

There are 3 B.U.I.L.D. programs plus “B.U.I.L.D. Days.”

 

The rest of this page is about B.U.I.L.D. Days which isn’t a training program, but rather something you can participate in when you join a B.U.I.L.D. program.

B.U.I.L.D. Days

 

B.U.I.L.D. Days are about uplifting your lives, dreams, and community.

 

On B.U.I.L.D. Days, you can work on one of our distressed properties or on a community service project. Here at City Incite, we have goals of:

  • no foreclosed properties in your neighborhoods
  • a safe place to live for everyone in your community
  • raising the value of your communities

You can put on a Community Service Event with us.

  • Trash pickup Days: We are committed to cleaning up and beautifying our communities. Join us as we clean up a park, open space, or retail corridor.
  • Positive Signage Days: You and volunteers will write positive affirmations and make signs. Then you display them around the neighborhood at local businesses and in public spaces.
  • This Old House Days: Work side-by-side with rehabbers on a project rehabbing one of our properties. Example of projects are: painting, landscaping, building benches and erecting a fence.
  • Community Service Days: Other program participants have identified senior homes and soup kitchens that need their services.
