Our Story


From its humble beginnings in 2015, AMIkids Gadsden has blossomed into a powerful force for change in Quincy, Florida. As a private nonprofit after-school program, we are committed to nurturing the dreams of local students aged 11-17, helping them carve their paths towards success through education and workforce development, job placement, and unwavering support. By transforming their behaviors, equipping them with essential life skills, and fostering a sense of community, we empower these young individuals to rise above their circumstances and become catalysts for positive change.


What We Offer


Community-based programs offer daily services to youth and families, with youth returning home each day if programming takes place outside of the home. We offer eight unique services with our community-based programs.

After School

After school programs offer a variety of activities such as tutoring, career readiness, and technical training to students during after-school hours. AMIkids After School programs provide students with comprehensive programming and support services to engage youth in positive opportunities that prepare them for success.


Program Enhancement Services may be provided as standalone or supplementary to a program.

Career and Technical Education

Provided in two age-appropriate models:

  • The AMIkids Career Exploration Model, for ages 11-15, helps youth build self-awareness, learn about potential careers, and develop a plan for reaching future goals.
  • The AMIkids Workforce Development Model, for ages 16-24, utilizes a combination of school-based and work-based learning to help youth learn job readiness skills, earn industry-recognized certifications, and transition to the workforce.

AMIkids Family Centric Model™ (FCM)

These services include research-informed skills training for families, provided in the home or community setting weekly. Services are designed to reduce anti-social behaviors of youth, improve the psychosocial functioning of youth, and improve family functioning.
