Building Understanding, Initiative and Leadership Development

Batya’s BUILD program is an exclusive program open to select applicants who have demonstrated an interest and ambition toward developing true leadership skills.  Eligibility for the BUILD program will require proven interest in leadership opportunities, references, and a commitment to Leadership and Volunteer hours.  BUILD offers its participants a comprehensive leadership training including Skill Acquisition Workshops for leadership qualities such as teamwork, innovation and initiative, empathy, self-identity, public speaking, confidence development, and awareness and tolerance.   These skills will be enhanced by exclusive BUILD activities and events, community service projects, and guest speakers which will expose members to real life leadership opportunities in a professional and progressive manner.

BUILD is open to girls in 10th-11th grade.   Acceptance into BUILD requires a commitment to attend all meetings and events, complete assigned tasks, and participate positively in all projects.  Participation in BUILD and ACTION can fulfill requirements for leadership and community service hours required by many schools and honors programs, the National Honor Society, and more.   Reference letters, documentation, and certificates of completion will be provided to all members.


Due to its intense nature of teamwork development and endurance training, our annual WOW trip is a great jumpstart to the BUILD program.  Participants of WOW who perform well will gain first consideration for acceptance to BUILD.  WOW 2014 will offer an advanced program for BUILD members.
