BEST started in 2014 and since inception has touched the lives of over 200 students ranging from middle school to young professionals, by reaching a broad group yet specifically targeting at-risk youth. As of now impact is being made with each student through: mentoring, life skills, STEM education/workshops, college and career prep. Some of the students we have reached have obtained GEDs, college acceptance, college degrees, and a few are now working professionals. This organization was started by a few ambitious college students who simply wanted to be the change and inspiration for the youth in the community. As of now the presence of BEST is continuing its influence in Tallahassee, FL and we are seeking to expand our reach.
Our focus is to provide students with the motivation and necessary tools to not only graduate high school, but to pursue higher education afterwards.What Do We Offer?
