Young Builders and Designers Volunteers

Young Builders and Designers


This organization has leveraged one of our Design Products to focus on the Young People of the Twin Cities who have experienced RIOTS. We have been involved in Minneapolis and St. Paul for many years. The product is a design kit that includes 10 projects for kids of all school ages. One project is developed specifically focused on the impact of the RIOTS in their community and they will be able to participate in a challenge where they will be able to win prizes including some amazing LEGO(R) Sets and other design toys and art supplies. We are looking for volunteers to help us finish packing the supplies and distribute the kits to kids in Minneapolis and St. Paul. This is taking place over the next week. If you would be interested in helping with volunteering, please contact Brian Kelley at 612-834-5219.
