The mission of LA’s BEST is to provide a safe and supervised after school education, enrichment and recreation program for school children ages 5 to 12 in the City of Los Angeles.

Volunteer Opportunity

Our volunteer coordinator will help you determine how best to get involved. Daily, weekly, or maybe just on occasional weekends. •Daily program volunteers participate during the program hours between 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m., Monday-Friday, as homework helpers or activity assistants. •Special events volunteers join in at various citywide events on weekends. •Corporate volunteers are employees participating in their company’s volunteer program. Ongoing, periodic or one-time event opportunities are available. •Administrative volunteers assist with office duties at our Corporate office at City Hall in downtown Los Angeles. •Sports volunteers help coaches and share their expertise in a favorite sport. LA’s BEST kids play practically everything at some point during the year. •Mentors offer support, friendship, and a constructive example to individual students. A mentor’s guidance and encouragement helps children explore their special talents and navigate their life decisions. On-site volunteers must show proof of tuberculosis clearance, accomplished within six months prior to volunteering.
