BAM Afterschool Activities
The Body and Mind Afterschool program (BAM) is facilitated by the Zach Gordon Youth Center in collaboration with the Juneau School District, community partners, and volunteers to provide free afterschool activities for Juneau middle school students. We believe all youth deserve free & fun afterschool activities led by positive, healthy mentors.
