Since 1969, BUILD has helped thousands of young people transform their lives, and today reaches over 6,500 youth and families annually with caring adult mentors and a rich variety of experiences in the arts, athletics, college & career preparation, entrepreneurship, leadership development, technology, and mental health programming.

Oliver Wyman is committed to making lasting positive impact to society, and that starts at home by making a difference in our local communities

Oliver Wyman has been proud to support BUILD Chicago over the past two years. We have participated in a variety of volunteer events and often act as panelists and informal mentors, providing advice on high school, college, and work to the BUILD youth. Through our volunteering events, Oliver Wyman colleagues have been able to provide insightful guidance that has helped motivate and inspire the BUILD youth, particularly during the challenging times of the Covid-19 pandemic.  

It makes me so proud to build relationships with organizations that are so critical in making our city a better place to be and to strive to make an incredible impact

Additionally, the Chicago office has raised significant funds for BUILD Chicago through our annual charity auctions. Without the financial contribution from our auction in December 2020, BUILD mentors and staff informed us that they would not have been able to provide so many services that became necessary at the time.

Thank you, Oliver Wyman, for becoming part of the village at BUILD, as we build hope, lives, and future
