Our Impact

For over 55 years AMIkids has impacted over 160,000 youth and their families by providing a variety of services designed to help young people discover their true potential.

Stronger youth, families, and communities

We’re a national youth-serving organization empowering young people to discover their life paths and believe success is possible. We believe change can happen one life, one family, and one community at a time.

Everyone here is treated like family, fostering high expectations, respect, and accountability. Our staff models healthy relationships while teaching social skills and how to make the best choices. They become an extended family – nurturing trust and respect.

Data-driven success

All youth served by AMIkids are assessed upon enrollment into the program to identify each youth’s individual needs, risks, and strengths. Once in the program, changes in youth needs, treatment goals, and outcomes are tracked regularly using standardized evaluation tools and surveys.

By measuring our youth’s progress throughout their time in the program, as well as following up with them for at least a year after leaving our programs through our partnership with an external evaluator, Policy Research Institute, we can better understand how effective AMIkids is at empowering our youth to develop to their true potential.
