The new BAAM Athletic Center is located in Easton, Maryland and provides local students with a safe, caring, and structured environment after school. The primary mission of BAAM is to identify and support first-grade African American males at risk for poor academic performance due to socioeconomic barriers. The new athletic center enables BAAM to extend their mission to engage older students, including middle & high schoolers.
The new facility is a pre-engineered building and includes solar panels that provide electricity for the building. The athletic center has a gymnasium, community room, kitchen, locker rooms, and offices for staff. The building will be used for programming such as sports clinics, charity tournaments, concerts, cooking classes, seminar, talent shows, and movie nights.
