B.E.S.T: Business Employment Standards Transition

The Columbia-Greene B.E.S.T. program helps students develop the skills, behaviors and knowledge necessary for success in the workplace and/or college.

Based on standards set by area businesses, B.E.S.T. assesses students’ competence through their academic performance and attendance, and community and career exploration activities. Each student creates a portfolio that demonstrates the application of his or her skills. Businesses participate by providing guest speakers, hosting tours, mentoring and providing internships.
