The BEST Foundation is a non-profit dedicated to providing Bulgarian students an inclusive and supportive space to practice critical thinking, public speaking, and creative expression.
We believe that words are powerful, and can engage diverse viewpoints to contribute to the well-being of societies.
BEST accomplishes its mission through the following activities:
Though no two experiences through BEST are alike, the following characterizes significant patterns of change experienced through participation in BEST’s programming:
1) Exposure: Through BEST, participants are exposed to new ideas, views, and perspectives.
2) Conviction: Participants then begin to care about certain idea(s) that they have been exposed to.
3) Education: Once they find an idea they care more about, they begin to learn more about this idea, and become more critically aware of what is going on.
4) Action: Based on what participants have learned and care about, they take action. Action can take many different forms.
