Millennium Fellowship Project: buildOn at University of Michigan-Dearborn
buildOn at UM-Dearborn is a college chapter that aims to support and advance buildOn's local and global programs and services. Our mission is to break the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and low expectations through service and education. Our chapter is dedicated to raising funds to build schools in the developing world, volunteering at local institutions and/or organizations, and becoming active citizens in our communities. Over the course of the next five months, our team hopes to double our current active membership, host at least four (4) educational and awareness events, fundraise over $1,000 for school construction abroad, and volunteer at four (4) local institutions or organizations in the Metro Detroit area.
