B.A.M. History

BAM (Beautiful Ambitious Me) began in January 2012 and was founded by Krystal Smith of Fort Worth, Texas. The vision for the program was inspired by her passion and determination to help young inner city girls. BAM’s mentorship program is designed to create a positive environment of love, support, and guidance. In addition, to facilitating our curriculum based workshops on Health, Etiquette, Character Development and Community Service, our workshops were created to counter self-destructive behavior caused by the lack of positive role models. BAM’s objective is to introduce them to another way of life and equips them with the knowledge to make better choices, resulting in enriching their future.

Our Mission

The mission of the BAM mentoring program is to teach young girls between the ages 11-18 life skills. As well as providing them with resourceful information necessary for preparing them to become responsible and productive women.  As a result our BAM mentees will be equipped to face the challenges of today’s society with confidence, assurance and sense of self worth
