The BEST Management Team is looking for current university students, recent university graduates or young working professionals to join our team for the 2021-2022 school year

About us

BEST Foundation was established with the goal of providing Bulgarian high school students an opportunity for expression in the field of public speech and debate. By participating in our competitions, students develop their creativity, critical thinking and learn how to express their ideas convincingly and clearly - skills that are valued and highly sought after by employers in recent years.
