    BGIA 2019

    Building Goodness in April is a student-run organization dedicated to keeping marginalized homeowners living in warmth, dignity, and decency and to improving the facilities of local community groups.  Each year, Building Goodness in April volunteers during the Fall and Spring in neighborhoods throughout the greater Charlottesville area.

    Members of Building Goodness in April, along with leadership from other community outreach clubs recently hosted a webinar where they shared their experiences at Darden and what their clubs bring to the Darden community.

    Although this organization has members who are University of Virginia students and may have University employees associated or engaged in its activities and affairs, the organization is not a part of or an agency of the University. It is a separate and independent organization which is responsible for and manages its own activities and affairs. The University does not direct, supervise or control the organization and is not responsible for the organization’s contracts, acts or omissions.”


    Building Goodness in April hosts a variety of events and activities throughout the year.

    • Autumn Project
    • April Build Day
