What is Social Enterprise?

A social enterprise is an organization that uses common business practices, but instead of having profit as the primary goal, uses social objectives (e.g. the environment, community needs, social justice) as their primary purpose.

The social enterprise wing of BUILD uses the power of the market to create training and employment opportunities for people with multiple barriers to employment. Through in class training, and on-the-job mentorship by our crew leaders, trainees gain invaluable life and work experience, making them more marketable to trades employers.
