What We Do

Build 2 Lead offers programming for youth, families, educators, and communities through B2L Direct, B2L Virtural, and B2L Legacy.

About Build 2 Lead

Build 2 Lead works to empower, engage, and educate – to lift collective skills and social capital amongst young people and their home communities so they can interact with, and advocate to change, the systems that historically limit them.

Building Legacy

Check out our founder Jimmy Brown talk about Build 2 Lead and how we are committed to empowering young people and building a legacy that matters.

Working to Change the System

Students. Families. Communities. Systems.

We deliver youth learning modules and workshops to make visible more options for youth to consider, from attending college to being entrepreneurs and business owners. We provide a consistent bridge between the classroom and the families and communities that students return home to. We deliver community programs rooted in equitable leadership and advocacy. These are the building blocks for system-wide change.
