buildOn's primary activities include 1) afterschool programs that mobilize urban teens to volunteer in their communities and 2) international school construction.
NPI Rating: NEUTRAL
buildOn's unique approach to engaging urban youths in both local and international volunteerism has a positive impact on students in the U.S., their local communities and international communities. buildOn's global school construction programs exhibit a high degree of impact and sustainability. Student surveys indicate the positive impact of buildOn afterschool programs but do not rigorously track outcomes. While buildOn staff has been forthcoming with responses to information requests, NPI would also like to see more detailed information disclosed on buildOn's website and annual filings.
