Program Mission

B.E.S.T. is a brand new YES pilot program that serves youth who are directly or indirectly affected by the Justice system. They will be working this year to identify program goals, to establish contacts with groups or agencies that serve this population and to begin the process of addressing the children's needs. Volunteers who would like to help in these efforts are encouraged to apply at the beginning of the fall semester for a two semester commitment.
