The AMIkids Personal Growth Model © is designated by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) National Registry as being evidence-based. According to SAMHSA’s research and independently-verified data, our kids have proven to make substantial educational gains and also to be far less likely to commit a later crime once they have successfully completed the AMIkids program. This designation provides AMIkids with a data-driven verification of our impact on transforming the lives of our communities’ kids.
