What is BAM

In addition to school-sponsored activities, B.A.M. (Body & Mind, Before/After Middle School), a student-named program of diverse community-based activities, is offered throughout the year by the Juneau Afterschool Coalition (JASC) in partnership with Dzantik’i Heeni and Floyd Dryden middle schools.

B.A.M. activities are based on student preference surveys and have included everything from judo and cooking to art studios, babysitting training, driver’s permit training, archery, yoga, Jr. Police Academy and more. Activities are provided by community organizations and individuals and are free for all students. Grade checks are not required and healthy snacks are served at every session.

JASC is a partnership of 18 local organizations committed to strengthening Juneau’s youth with sustainable, community-based, fun and enriching before and after school activities. Family involvement is welcome. Contact the B.A.M. coordinator at 796-5811.
