The Bottom Line
The bottom line is that mentoring works! BEST Kids Mentoring Program is guided by the belief that all children are talented. Through our one-on-one volunteer mentoring, our extensive training, staff support and our experiential-learning-based peer group, we encourage our youth to discover and develop their unique skills and abilities. Beginning with children as young as six and continuing, as needed, until adulthood, BEST Kids Mentoring Program works to enable youth to develop a positive sense of self, to acquire teamwork and group social skills, and to become productive members of society.

More Mentors Needed
BEST Kids Mentor of the Month
Craig Capossela - September 2015
Craig and his mentee, Evan, have been matched since April of this year. Since then, Craig has put a lot of time and energy into his match with Evan. Craig has been very intentional in exposing Evan to new things, but has also allowed himself to learn from Evan as well. Craig has supported in Evan in many ways in the short time they have been together through acts such as arranging a behind-the-scenes tour at the National Zoo, taking Evan to local sporting events, and even helping Evan buy a birthday cake for his sister’s birthday. Craig is a mentor that is determined and passionate, while at the same time, remaining open to learning from Evan and adapting to what Evan wants from the relationship. Thank you for all you do, Craig!

“BEST Kids helped me by showing me things that I wouldn’t have been able to do, and they pushed me forward so when I get older I’ll be able to do these things on my own.”
