LA’s BEST Afterschool Enrichment Program plays a vital role in the lives of unique and talented elementary school students who attend 203 LAUSD schools in neighborhoods with the fewest resources yet the greatest needs.

Every school day and during summer, each LA’s BEST student receives a nutritious meal, academic support and the opportunity to participate in a wide array of enrichment activities – at no cost to families.

The LA’s BEST Summer Program mirrors our program during the regular academic school year where children are engaged in experiential learning opportunities around language arts, sports, student wellness and lots of fun.

LA’s BEST engages children creatively, emotionally, intellectually and physically, empowering them to explore and discover the opportunities in their lives. We inspire and prepare children to create lives full of choices.
