Melbourne Center for Personal Growth, operated by AMIkids Space Coast

Helping Florida boys discover their potential since 1988.

Our Story

Our Program

Founded in 1988, the Melbourne Center for Personal Growth, operated by AMIkids Space Coast, is a private nonprofit, staff-secure residential facility in Melbourne, Florida. Our program operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, serving kids who have committed a variety of offenses and are involved with Florida Department of Juvenile Justice. Our kids are living in dormitories on campus in a remote location, which is ideally structured to help them work through their issues and gain the needed skills to return to their families and communities.

AMIkids Space Coast’s Melbourne Center for Personal Growth uses the evidence-based, research-driven AMIkids Personal Growth Model © in offering dynamic programs and comprehensive services to treat each kid's unique issues, primarily focusing on education, behavior modification, and treatment.

Since 1998, AMIkids Space Coast has helped over 1,500 kids transform their lives and despite our kids averaging over 12 arrests prior to enrolling in our program, 71% of our kids do not re-offend within the first year of completion.
