The BEST after school program is celebrating 18 years of success supporting students in the most need of academic and enrichment opportunities in Eugene School District 4J. Our Mission: In collaboration with community partners, BEST aims to engage youth in academic and enrichment opportunities that foster self-confidence, determination, a joy of learning, and a sense of community. Students participated in learning about plastic pollution on the planet and then worked together to create messages of hope for the planet on Tree of Life parachutes.
