Build UP is a nonprofit workforce development school for low-income youth in Birmingham, Alabama, that sees its students through their high school diploma and associate’s degree while training them for careers in construction and real estate. At the end of the six-year curriculum, students can become homeowners themselves by purchasing one of the properties renovated by the program. “The big thing that’s going to shift the wealth equation is when you get somebody out of a rental position and into homeownership, and that’s the goal behind it,” Build UP CEO Mark Martin said.
