Participate in B.U.I.L.D. Days! B.U.I.L.D. Days are monthly volunteer projects that family and friends can participate in.


All of our volunteer projects are a chance to work with the youth in our programs and all serve the community. When you participate in B.U.I.L.D. Days, you show our youth that you care about their lives and dreams by taking an active role helping them reach their goals. Meanwhile, you’ll be helping to create a safer and more beautiful community and helping increase its value.


These projects happen on the Southside of Chicago. We know everyone is busy, so please feel free to bring your kids.


  • 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: Youth and volunteers create signs with positive affirmations. We display them around the neighborhood at local businesses and in public spaces.
  • This Old House Days: Work side-by-side with our trainees on a project rehabbing one of our properties. We may be painting, landscaping or building something such as benches or a fence.
  • Community Service Days: Our youth have identified senior homes and soup kitchens that need their services. Join us.



We’re always looking or inspiring speakers to talk to our program participants. If you have an inspiring story to share, please let us know.
