BEST Mentoring Program

Shining Star Youth and Community Services BEST (Building Employment Skills & Techniques) program strengthens the communities we work in through two paths: by helping underserved youth become motivated learners and connected community members, and by encouraging adults to nurture the next generation through mentoring and volunteerism.

This program is aimed at providing the youth we serve with employment skills, leadership training and support.

This summer we had the opportunity of mentoring eight high school students.
