Volunteers needed June 2 at NU for Youth Business Plan Competition

This is not a Center for STEM Education event, but a cool event in need of volunteers on campus.

BUILD is currently seeking volunteers to assist with their inaugural Youth Business Plan Competition on Saturday, June 2nd at Northeastern University.  This will be an exciting event featuring 102 students competing on 20 teams to win a cash prize of $1,500.  Event organizers are expecting close to 1,000 guests including students, families, mentors, business coaches, corporate partners, venture advisors, board members and friends of BUILD. Mayor Menino will give opening remarks. All volunteers can watch the Final Round Competition. (See Volunteers must be available on Saturday, June 2 from 8 am – 5 pm.  There are 2 shifts available: Morning Shift from 8 am to 1 pm, and Afternoon Shift from 11:00 am – 5 pm.  There will also be a Volunteer Orientation on May 31st from 6-9 pm at Northeastern. If you are available, please email Volunteer Coordinator Michelle Morgan at

BUILD uses entrepreneurship to propel disconnected, low-income youth through high school to college. Through a four-year program that helps students develop and run their own small businesses, BUILD supplements traditional school with real-world business experiences and critical skill-building for the future.
