BT Ambassadors all share a few things in common, they have a passion for global education, they are creative thinkers and go-getters, and they believe in the power of young people to make a positive change. Our Ambassadors lead BT chapters on campuses in the US and abroad.
Building Tomorrow chapters are groups of students on campuses across the country who are passionate about creating a world where all children have access to an education, committed to making a real impact, and willing to dedicate their time and talents to a cause greater than themselves. BT chapters fundraise, share BT and create positive change.
In order to provide their children with access to an education, our partner communities in East Africa need access to resources. That's why each BT chapter works toward the goal of funding 1 BT classroom ($3,500) per semester.
Chapter members engage their campus in BT's work and raise awareness about the global education crisis on their campus.
Create Positive Change
Most importantly, BT chapters create a lasting impact in both their communitiy, by sharing about BT's mission and the need to improve access to education across the world, and in BT partner communities by funding safe, permanent, and local schools.
As a result of BT Ambassadors’ determination and leadership, BT chapters have raised well over half a million dollars for the construction of primary schools in rural Uganda, developed a strong connection to their global community, and have gained an understanding of the privileges and opportunities we so often take for granted.
Along the way, student leaders have motivated their peers to become actively involved in a cause greater than themselves, networked with businesses and individuals to gain support for their chapters’ activities, collaborated and built partnerships with a multitude of campus groups, and created, planned, and completed, countless successful events and projects.
The funds Building Tomorrow chapters have raised have supported the construction of 16 Building Tomorrow primary schools.
All of Building Tomorrow’s chapters were founded by students, like you, who wanted to use their talents to make a real impact. You can bring Building Tomorrow to your school by applying to become a BT Ambassador through our online application form.
