“It was clear to me in an instant that LA’s BEST changes lives, and I wanted to be a part of that." – Christopher D. Dusseault, Chair, LA's BEST Board of Directors
They give of themselves, enlist and engage their companies and employees, and connect us to their families and friends — all in support of LA’s BEST students and families. They are true believers, and our best supporters and ambassadors.
“LA’s BEST changes lives. It changes the lives of the thousands of kids who have a safe place to learn, play and grow every day after school. It changes the lives of the families who can go about their jobs and daily lives with the knowing that their kids are safe, happy and thriving. It changes the lives of the people in the communities we serve, making those communities safer and developing a new generation of confident, inquisitive young people who are educated, engaged, and know the value of giving back. And it changes the lives of those of us who are fortunate enough to work with and support LA’s BEST to make sure that we preserve and advance an afterschool program that is a model for the nation and one of the crown jewels of our great city. I hope that you will join me, and all of the members of our three boards, in supporting the vitally important work LA’s BEST does every day. There is much to be done, and no better cause for which to do it.” – Chistopher D. Dusseault, Chair, LA’s BEST Board of Directors
