2017 BAD Scholarship Fund

Help Sponsor a Child: your gift will help allow a youth to participate in our summer programs. Our programs range from sports, science and technology and later this year engineering.  

In every community, an increasing number of youth are at home with no adult care or supervision. They are left to find their own recreation and companionship in their neighborhoods and at times can fall prey to poor choices. Our youth need to know that they have outlets, and that there are programs that care about them. Brown Athletic Division is such a program. BAD offers programs and services that promote and enhance the development of our young adults by instilling a sense of self-confidence and team-work. We use sports to teach valuable life lessons while also helping to keep them fit and active. We believe that our God-given purpose is to be able to touch the lives of our communities one youth at a time.  

At this time BAD serves over 150 youth each year in its various programs and as with most community organizations BAD relies on the support and generosity of others to help keep its doors, programs and services open to the community. As we have learned, not every kid's family is able to afford sending them to camp. BAD works side by side with its neighbors every day to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.

Your donations/contributions will have a positve and lifelong impact on the lives of youth. Your donations will also go to help purchase equipment (jump ropes, basketballs, and gym-space) and other items needed for the youth that we serve. Remember each gift counts no matter how big or small.  Working together, we can reach the next generation of youth who will transform themselves, their communities, and America for the better.
