The BEST Afterschool Program, funded in part by 21st Century Community Learning Center and Oregon  Community Foundation grants, is located in six 4J schools.

BEST is an academic and enrichment program supporting kids and families of Eugene since 2000.

Elementary students in need of additional reading and  math support are invited to participate in this school-based program. The middle level program is open to all  students at that site.  The school district’s Title 1 program partners to provide reading and math interventions, staffing, training and curriculum support.


BEST begins October 19th for the 2016-2017 school year. Contact your school for more information!



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.


BEST strives to provide enriching afterschool programs for all students in need of expanded learning opportunities in our community. We will work to:

  • Foster mutually respectful relationships that honor student voice in decision making.
  • Boost academic achievement for all students.
  • Create an environment that supports necessary positive youth development.
  • Continually adapt program to empower students in becoming viable citizens of the 21st century.
