BAM School Expansion

Home / BAM School Expansion

“The incredible philanthropic support we are receiving from Jimmy John’s owner, Jimmy John Liautaud, Exelon, Get IN Chicago, People’s Gas, and Bank of America will increase our ability to deliver BAM mentoring across Chicago,” said A.J. Watson, Director of BAM.” Our counselors meet young men where they are—both physically and emotionally—with caring adult relationships that nurture and safeguard their future success. For years, Mayor Emanuel and the City of Chicago have stood beside mentoring services and the research that proves that adolescence is not too late to help course correct the life trajectory of at-risk youth.”
