How can you, or your organization or business, help provide afterschool activities?
Volunteers and Groups:
Do you, or your organization, have a special interest or skill that you are willing to share with young people? Some examples of organizations that have provided activities are: Bartlett Hospital, Baby Sitter Certification; Juneau Police Department, Junior Police Academy; Discovery Southeast “Outdoor Discovery Games”; Juneau Economic Development Council “S.T.E.M. activities”; etc.
Businesses and Organization Sponsors:
Providing modest ongoing funding for an activity is good for kids and good for business. Better yet, your business or organization may also want to identify with a specific activity and encourage employees to act as instructors. Depending on the activity and the number of sessions costs can range from $500 to $1500 per activity per semester per school. The B.A.M. program will thank and recognize business and organization sponsors.
