program for kids ages 10-17
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA — The Brevard Attitude Modification (B.A.M.) Program is currently taking registration for kids ages 10-17 for upcoming classes.
This new and unique program is designed to teach kids what happens when we make bad choices in life and what can happen when we make the right choices in life.
The program is offered to help parents with kids who are making bad choices in life, starting to get in trouble or aligning themselves with poor associates.
This one of a kind program works to get to kids before they get to us at the Jail, by sending a strong and clear message about making good and bad choices.
Our next class is for males from 14-17 years of age and takes place this Saturday at our newly created B.A.M. Facility in Sharpes.
I encourage you to take advantage of this “Free” program that can truly make an impact in helping your child make the right decisions in life.
For more information about the class this Saturday and future classes please visit our website at Brevardsheriff.com (Click on the B.A.M. link) or contact our Crime Prevention Unit at 321-264-7755.
