Join BEST Kids for their Annual Family Winter Celebration at Howard University.

Seeking 10-15 volunteers to help with the inaugural winter celebration! Volunteers will receive a free t-shirt and lunch!

BEST Kids sponsors one-on-one mentoring for youth in the foster care system in Washington, DC. The mentors and mentees will be gathering at Howard University for a fun day of events! Volunteer chefts will teach kids how to prepare a meal and mentors will participate in a workshop about nutrition. There will also be a clothing, toy, and food drive.

Volunteers will be working with other AmeriCorps Alums to collect donations (arrive at 8 am), sort and organize all donations, and manage the distribution at the end of the day.

Two shifts are available from 8-11 or 11-3 or all day, if you can make it!

30 families and more than 120 people are expected to attend. So lots of volunteers are needed to help manage the donations and make sure it is successful as well as help with general set-up/clean-up!
