A percentage of proceeds from next Saturday's "Connected" art show will be donated to BUILD Metro DC, where I volunteer as a mentor. BUILD is a 4-year college preparation program whose mission is to use entrepreneurship to excite and propel students through high school to college success. Since last September, I have worked with Kidz Rock, an amazing group of young entrepreneurs whose business involves planning parties and selling specialty DIY party items like their popular party-in-a-bag.
Volunteering as a mentor has been a great deal of fun and highly rewarding on many levels. I am constantly impressed with the students, the staff and volunteers. If you are interested in working with BUILD, there are currently opportunities to volunteer as mentors and tutors. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in mentoring and email email@example.com if interested in tutoring. The deadline for applying is 9/21/11.
Help support the efforts of BUILD by attending "Connected" next Saturday 9/24, 4-8pm at H Street Community Development Corporation, 501 H ST NE.
Hope to see you there!
