Building With Books President and CEO Jim Ziolkowski talks with ABC News about BwB's history, its mission and its future.

BwB is a not-for-profit organization that engages primarily urban youth through after-school programs and in their classrooms. We integrate global education presentations into social studies classes, and through our after-school programs students contribute intensive community service while helping to build schools in developing countries around the world. In the past year, students in the U.S. contributed over 99,000 hours of service and have touched the lives of more 150,000 elders, homeless, disabled, young children and others through BwB. We have established these programs in more than 100 schools in New York, Connecticut, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Illinois and California. 97% of the American high school students we have worked with over the last five years are now in college. Since we began in 1991, BwB has built schools in remote villages of developing countries on four continents. We have just completed construction of our 250th school. There are now more than 100,000 children and parents that have attended BwB schools built world-wide.
