Local Students Can Chat with Twitter Founder Today

Jack Dorsey is hosting an open video chat this afternoon.

Silicon Valley entrepreneur Jack Dorsey is hosting a video-mentoring session today to foster entrepreneurship among disengaged high school students, according to Marketwatch.

The Twitter founder is partnering with the national board of Redwood City-based BUILD, a four-year college prep program that uses entrepreneurship to excite and help disengaged, low-income youth graduate high school and head to college.

"The chat with Jack is a way for the students to be inspired and learn from one of our country's highest profile and most accomplished entrepreneurs," BUILD founder and CEO Suzanne McKechnie Klahr told MarketWatch.

The video chat is scheduled for today at 4:30 p.m. and is open to anyone. Click here and click "Join the chat." Attendees will have the opportunity to ask Jack questions about BUILD and entrepreneurship.
