Ride Along: Our special guest (the driver), representing department officer, and BamFam Director will drive around the school community in a BamFam provided vehicle for 30 mins having an open and honest conversation about the issues/needs of that community.
Curriculum Based Q&A Session: Students are sent a pre-survey with gauging questions about their thoughts, experiences, and opinions about law enforcement that allow for a guided and strategic 30-45 min Curriculum based Q&A session with law enforcement officer, special guest, and BamFam staff. Areas of priority include, education, community/police relations, racial equality and economic development empowering athletes, sports leaders, and the community to become effective advocates for change.
Sports Clinic: Student Athletes and Law Enforcement officers are grouped together in teams must work together during a 30-45 sports clinic with fun competition drills that focus on all phases of the game, leadership, teamwork, and hard work.

“Push the envelope on having racial injustice conversations.”
“The issue can improve by making it easier to talk to a cop”
“More training but also more teaching people how to rightfully encounter law enforcement”.
