Become a BEST Friend.

Experience one of the most social and philanthropic young professional groups in LA.

Led by the BEST Friends Board, this dynamic network creates connections to our students, from teaching kids how to DJ to helping them understand velocity to introducing them to artists, engineers and athletes.

BEST Friends organize fundraising events, like unWINEdLA, and raise awareness and funds through creative activations and getting companies involved.

Joining the BEST Friends network is rewarding and fun — for you and our students.

“I grew up below the poverty line and really had some amazing teachers that took me under their wings, and helped me along and on the right path. I wasn’t fortunate enough to have a program like this, but I really feel the LA’s BEST program makes all the difference for these kids. Having the opportunity to give back and make a difference in one (or even thousands) of kids’ lives is really important to me.”
– Bill Mayne, Head of Operations, Stila Cosmetics, BEST Friends Board Member
