GreenStone in the Community: Building 21

​Engaging in local activities is one way GreenStone gives back to places where we work and live. Our employees carry out our passion for community engagement through a variety of activities both as GreenStone representatives and as volunteers – we are pleased to tell their stories here. Watch for upcoming stories of how our employees give back in our Open Fields blog!


It takes just 21 days to form a habit, and most influential habits form before the age of 21. This philosophy is the driving force behind the directors and volunteers at Building Twentyone, a youth-centered organization in Mason, Michigan. Building Twentyone embraces the concept of youth as the future of our communities by organizing meaningful activities and workshops in an effort to reach 7th to 12th grade students at their most impressionable ages.

After hearing about Building Twentyone, team members at GreenStone’s Mason branch contributed to the organizations efforts by making a generous donation. With donations like these from various sponsors, Building Twentyone can provide kids and young adults with a safe, fun and structured after-school hangout spot.

So what does Building Twentyone offer? Kids and young adults can enroll in a variety of organized activities such as culinary classes, CrossFit, video game design and applied digital arts classes. These are ways for students to engage in activities particularly interesting to them while building and broadening their skills including after-school jobs at the organizations’ skate park snack counter or front desk. The workshops Building Twentyone offer have especially beneficial components, with life-skills and good habits being essential teaching points.
