Built4Agility is A 501c3 nonprofit committed to enabling leadership pipelines for all People of Color. We are transforming historically disenfranchised communities from the inside out.
What is agile?
Agile is a mindset and practical framework that is used every day by many of the world’s largest, most complex enterprises to transform from the inside out. At Built4Agility, we are leveraging industry best practices to incite change by empowering and enabling our communities to do better and be better. We are applying agile strategies and approaches in a social context to solve for some of the biggest problems plaguing our communities.
Our programs are designed to meet people where they are and help them navigate to the new. Through our training and coaching programs, we provide community members with the skills and capabilities required to improve their hireability and increase their earning potential. We also work with community leaders, advocates, public service agencies, and other nonprofits to amplify and accelerate the important work they are already doing.

If any of these opportunityies resonate with you, then you're in the right place and Built4Agility is just a text, email, or phone call away.
ACTion (Agile for Community Transformation) is a movement centered on building self-healing communities. Agile is a mindset and practical framework that is used every day by many of the world’s largest, most complex enterprises to transform from the inside out. At Built4Agility,
In our first program year, 2023 we aim to reach 500+ unemployed or underemployed workers from historically disenfranchised communities. Our goal is to build up our communities by providing agile training as a strategic differentiator. In the throws of the pandemic and steep economic downturn, employers are pressed to reinvent how they deliver their products and services to their customers.
In response to these pressures, employers are seeking indidividuals who have the capacity to adjust, pivot, and adapt to the ever changing demands of a learning organization. By gaining these in-demand skills, working adults will not only improve their hireability, but increase their earning potential. In doing so, there is a very high potential for us to change the trajectory of socio-economic outcomes for individuals, families, communities, and the nation.
