Former NBA star and Buffalo native Bob Lanier joining city officials Friday afternoon to discuss the eight-week camp.
It's called "Game Changers," and begins Friday night at the Delavan Grider Community Center.
The city says it's meant to steer 10- to 18-year-old boys and girls away from drugs and crime.
Lanier says the program is about changing the mindset of young people.
The program is open to 125 kids -- and runs from 6 p.m. through 9 p.m. on Friday nights through October 5th.
It's paid for through money seized during drug investigations.
