Youth Guidance’s Becoming a Man (BAM) Advisory Council is composed of individuals who are committed to helping young men in Chicago’s schools. Each council member has a strong desire be actively involved in solving the issues these youth face. Each devotes time, talent and expertise to the current and future work of the program.
