About

BEST Kids is a 501(3) non-profit organization that provides one-on-one mentoring to foster care children in the District of Columbia. Foster care children are the most at-risk population of children in America with over 1,100 children in the District of Columbia's child welfare system. We are currently in need of mentors who live in the following places:

  • Washington, DC
  • Prince George’s County, Maryland
  • Anne Arundel County, Maryland
  • Charles County, Maryland
  • Fairfax County, Virginia
  • Arlington County, Virginia

Starting with children aged 6 and continuing, as needed, to the age of 21, BEST Kids Mentoring Program enables youth to develop a positive sense of self; to acquire teamwork and group social skills; and to become productive members of society.

To become a BEST Kids mentor, volunteers are required to do the following:

* Commit to be a mentor for a minimum of one year

* Commit to spend 10 hours per month with your mentee, including weekly contact and a monthly peer group activity

* Complete the background clearance process, and a pre-service training

* You must have a clean driving record as well as a clean criminal background record

Please visit our website at www.bestkids.org and consider filling out our online application. Or, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Mentor Recruiter at daniel@bestkids.org
