Positive change takes a lot of great people.

LA's BEST succeeds because of people with vision, passion, enthusiasm, creativity, patience and a lot of love.

Engaging children as active learners — and helping them see new choices and opportunities — takes staff members that care, listen and support students and their families. It takes board members actively participating in our governance, fundraising, programming, and partnerships, and volunteers and alumni who gladly share their time and life experiences with our kids. It takes partners who help us imagine, create and launch new programming, and sustain our core activities. And it takes the generosity of our many supporters.
