Our Story

Preparing Today for Jobs Tomorrow

The Melbourne Center for Personal Growth, operated by AMIkids Space Coast, understands that to obtain and sustain a productive, crime-free life our kids must succeed in the classroom and acquire the skills needed to obtain employment after graduation.

The kids at our program work towards obtaining their high school diploma or GED and we begin the transition planning early so that when our kids turn 18 they have a clear plan for school or work.

We offer a vocational program in food service, allowing our students to earn ServSafe food handler certifications from the National Restaurant Association and local restaurant associations. This certification helps participants prepare for careers in the food service industry.


We also offer training and certifications in personal training, providing our kids the opportunity to strengthen their mind and body, and provide potential career or entrepreneurial opportunities in their future.

Finally, we offer EKG certifications, offering more job opportunities, increased subject matter expertise, and an increased pay scale for future employment.

Each and every graduate from our program should leave our facility with skills that will lead them to immediate or provide options for future employment.
