More about Build Chicago
Build changes lives by providing safe and constructive alternatives to youth who are invoved with gangs, the justice system, or risky behaviors.
By offering both individualized as well as community-based programming, BUILD opens doors for youth who may have given up, helping them take charge of their lives, futures, and communities.
BUILD’s Peace Leagues bring together ex-gang members, police, and neighborhood kids to create positive alternatives to street life and to build trust. Intensive mentoring provides troubled youth with the support and opportunities to develop goals and hold themselves accountable.
The Youth Leadership Council, Restorative Justice Initiative, and Inward Healing Camping Trips are just some of the ways BUILD ensures that court- and gang-involved youth invest in their futures.
