Jim Erickson
Vice President

Mr. Erickson lived and worked in Philadelphia, PA.  He moved to Georgia last year to be closer to his daughter and grandchildren. After an early retirement, he volunteered for the Public Schools as a Substitute teacher in special needs classrooms.  He eventually obtained certification to teach both regular and special needs classrooms. He came to BYCF as a volunteer, tutoring boys and girls in various subjects, and seeing them gaining confidence in themselves has given him a very satisfying experience.  With his knowledge and experience, Mr. Erickson has been an excellent role model to our youth.  He was appointed to the position of BYCF Vice President.  

Anthony Glenn

Director of Activities

Anthony being the eldest of 5 children, has an affinity for helping the youth and a natural "big brother" approach. Having his associates in Business Management & Administration he has a knowledge of networking and marketing. His ultimate goal is to become a teacher, and possibly a student counselor. His insights on the children of today and how to help them in the social media age are his tools to become a great mentor.
