Support the BUILD Program


The Bethel University Inclusive Learning and Development (BUILD) program is a 2-year postsecondary, residential program for young adults with intellectual disabilities that focuses on academic, vocational, residential, and social learning experiences. Not only will BUILD students earn a certificate, but they'll develop skills to live independently, find a job they love, and live up to their God-given potential.

The Need

Bethel University focuses on developing the whole person: academically, spiritually, physically, and relationally. That's what makes Bethel's new program different: our holistic, Christian approach to higher education.

Get Involved

We believe strongly in the need for and potential of this program. Is your heart stirred by this special opportunity? Please consider a gift to BUILD.

Our goal is to raise $500,000 to fund start-up costs to:

  • Hire a program director
  • Prepare curriculum and materials
  • Make required facilities accommodations
  • Start a scholarship fund

Join us to help young people with intellectual disabilities prepare for a rich, full, and more independent life!
