About Us

BEST Kids is a nonprofit mentoring organization that empowers youth in foster care to build better futures, one child at a time.

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.


BEST Kids initiated and is currently a contractor of the District of Columbia's Child and Family Service Agency. CFSA refers male and female youth, aged 6 to 21, from the foster care system, to be matched with BEST Kids' Mentors.

BEST Kids Requires from our volunteers at least a 1 year commitment to mentoring a child, as well as a minimum of 8-10 hours a month of volunteer mentoring.
