We have developed significant content for our revamped website (layout confirmed, editing in progress) that is launching in a few weeks. We need a strong writer and editor to help fine-tune language, strengthen messaging/story-telling for the pages developed.
BUILD NYC needs to be able to effectively communicate its impact in a manner that inspires engagement from the community (volunteer time and money). This is especially important in NYC where there are hundreds of organizations competing for attention and given our current news cycle - we are competing with so many other things as well. The information on the site needs to be concise, relevant and moving.
BUILD's mission is to use entrepreneurship to ignite the potential of youth from under-resourced communities and propel them to high school, college, and career success. By empowering students to develop and run their own small businesses, BUILD supplements traditional classroom instruction with real-world business experiences and critical skill-building for the future. Entrepreneurship is the hook, and college and career success are the goals. All of our business and academic activities foster proficiency in 21st-century skills that research has shown prepare students for success in college and beyond.
