According to the national research, in the U.S., youth crime rate for the first hour after school is triple, and youth not in after school programs are 3 times more likely to experiment with drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, and more.
B.A.M! is a community-based program of diverse, volunteer-led after school activities, offered to supplement regular school-sponsored sports and clubs.
All B.A.M! activities take place at school free of charge, and healthy snacks are offered at every session.

Become a B.A.M! Instructor!
B.A.M! engages members of the community to volunteer by sharing their interests and hobbies with middle school students during after school activities.
A B.A.M! activity can be any appropriate that will engage middle school students.
Activities take place from 3:05 PM to 4:20 PM, Mon. – Thurs. during the school year.
Most activities are 4 – 10 sessions long .
If you would like to be an instructor or believe your organization might want to participate,
we want to talk with you!
Family involvement is always welcome.
