When Principal Owens introduced the After School Leaders, the students applauded each one loudly. They were eager to get started. The first order of business however was an interest survey.
After the surveys were completed, the students ate one of our favorite meals; hotdogs and beans! Today was an organizing day and BWAP Coaches Bob and Eddie helped with the organizing. We begin our actual classes tomorrow.
Planning activities that are in the students best interests is always the best plan of action. West Hertel was a hotbed of activity today as they received some brand new technology support. Parents were invited to share in the good news. Great things are happening in the Buffalo Schools! .

1. ADOPT A BWAP DINNER - Each Thursday Night at Expressway Assembly we serve a Meal for BWAP. This is an excellent way for your church, youth group or community group to serve some young men from the inner-city. You bring the food and use our kitchen to prepare the food. Our numbers vary between 20 - 40 people each Thursday night.
2. BWAP Adoption - For only $5 per week, you can sponsor a young person from the inner-city between the ages of 18-30 yrs. old. For every $5, a young guy gets over 2 hrs of physical exercise through basketball, a 9MD (9 Minute Life Direction) and a home-style meal. We are a mentoring organization and everything we do is designed to create a more beneficial relationship. We help guys with their education, employment, community service, safe place to live and a relationship with God. Some guys also receive transportation to and from BWAP.
3. 9MD Speaker - If you have some wisdom to pass along to young guys then we would be happy to discuss how you might do that. You would come on a Thursday night and speak for 9 minutes. After your 9 minutes are up, you are welcome to form relationships with the guys as they eat an awesome meal.
Thanks for your time. Go and do something nice for somebody.
