LA's BEST Social Media VISTA Fellow
 
 
 
The mission of LA's BEST Afterschool Enrichment Program is to provide a safe and supervised afterschool education, enrichment and recreation program for children ages five to 12 in Los Angeles. Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley created LA's BEST in 1988 in response to challenges arising from increasing numbers of unsupervised children throughout the City during out of school time, especially within under resourced Los Angeles neighborhoods that are disproportionately impacted by high rates of poverty and crime. LA's BEST has grown from operating at 10 Los Angeles Unified School District elementary school sites to 200. Since the organizations inception, LAs BEST has provided about 400,000 elementary students with out of school time learning experiences within safe, stable and stimulating environments to ensure short term and long term academic and social success. Since 1988, LAs BEST has brought more than $400 million in public and private dollars to the City of Los Angeles, with a significant percentage used for salaries of youth development community staff hired from neighborhoods in which the children served by the organization reside.
