How to Build Urban Prosperity

President & CEO
Build Up



White flight and urban blight have left inner-city communities dilapidated; jobs gone, schools struggling, homes and businesses boarded and abandoned. Build UP reverses this crisis by empowering and equipping young people to deliver the necessary change to revitalize their home communities while also gaining ownership of a house and rental property. Youth earn a quality, career-focused education along with industry-demanded skills and credentials while restoring leadership, ownership, and stability to their neighborhoods.
