In 1969, BUILD (Broader Urban Involvement & Leadership Development) started out as a gang intervention program serving fewer than 200 gang-affiliated youth in one community and now serves over 3,000 youth annually with effective, high impact programs that create outstanding results. BUILD operates in five program sites and in the following communities: Austin, Logan Square, Fuller Park/Grand Boulevard, Humboldt Park and East Garfield. - while continuing to provide support in other Chicago neighborhoods and throughout Cook County, including youth who have come in contact with the justice system to prevent and/or provide alternatives to detention and assist with successful re-entry into their home communities. BUILD’s mission is to engage at-risk youth in the schools and on the streets, so they can realize their educational and career potential and contribute to the stability, safety and well being of our communities.
