The Bottom Line
The bottom line is that mentoring works! 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 Mentor of the Month
Linda Nico - December 2015
Linda and Michael just celebrated their one year match anniversary, and it’s been an amazing year! Michael LOVES art, so they’ve incorporated creativity into many of their outings. Sometimes Michael brings along drawings to show Linda, sometimes the create things together while on a snack break, or sometimes they focus on creativity for the day! In December, Linda and Michael went to the Botanical Gardens to see the holiday train display. While there, they participated in a scavenger hunt to find different plants, and Michael got a chance to draw in his sketchpad. These two are also faithful Peer Group attendees and had a blast playing laser tag this month! Linda is one of the most consistent mentors around. She makes sure she’s in touch with Michael every week, and Michael always tells our staff what his next adventure with Ms. Linda will be! Congratulations, Linda!

“BEST Kids helped me by showing me things that I wouldn’t have been able to do, and they pushed me forward so when I get older I’ll be able to do these things on my own.”
