The BaM Program

The BaM program is an extracurricular physical activity leadership program, supported by school staff and community partners.  The overall goal of BaM is to engage youth in the process of building healthier communities through the development of physical activity initiatives in their schools and communities.  This is accomplished though leadership development, creation of action plans and ongoing support by school Adult Champions who in turn are supported by an external Partnership Committee.

BaM is targeted to grade 9 to 12 students who you feel show leadership development potential and especially those who may not be involved in organized school activities.
