First Down Ride Along
January 25 @ 9:00 am – 10:30 am
Former Texas Longhorn Will Matthews will be participating in the BamFam Foundation’s First Down Ride Along event being held at Westwood High School on Jan 25.
This free social justice program is designed to help bridge the gap between the community and local Police Departments through a curriculum-based Q&A and sports clinic for at-risk or underserved youth with the help of a professional athlete. For this program BamFam Foundation partners with professional athletes, local law enforcement officers and local schools/community centers. The athlete then drives the officer around the community they patrol and have an open conversation about the needs of that community. Together they then host a sports clinic and curriculum based Q/A session at a local school or community center with at-risk youth and bring a positive experience for the youth to interact with the law enforcement officers in their community.
BamFam Foundation aims to foster positive relationships/experiences and productive citizens by engaging youth in dynamic sport related community programs and events by working in partnership with professional athletes, counselors, teachers, law enforcement, military, first responders and other community-based organizations!
