Every day, AMIkids Beaufort works with teenage boys to foster character building, promote experiential learning at provide treatment for the community’s most at-risk youth. Now, on September 21st, the community has the opportunity to see their program firsthand, helping AMIkids Beaufort win some prizes along the way.
AMIkids Beaufort is holding a special tour date on Monday, September 21 from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. to compete against AMIkids chapters across the country for cash prizes that will support the organization’s operations. The community is invited to take a tour of the program to see how AMIkids Beaufort helps kids reach their potential each and every day. A raffle will be held amongst attendees, with the winner receiving a custom-made piece from the AMIkids Beaufort on-site welding program.
The AMIkids Tour Takedown is part of a National initiative to encourage as many people in the AMIkids communities as possible to meet the kids in this successful program. AMIkids is a nationally-recognized non-profit organization dedicated to helping kids discover their full potential and change their lives. In its last fiscal year, AMIkids Beaufort alone served 115 males ages 14-19 through various programs including intervention treatment, residential education and community service projects with partner organizations like Adopt a Highway and Friends of the Library.
“Every kid has the potential to be a contributing member of their family and society,” says Jimmy Boozer, the Board Chair of AMIkids Beaufort. “We are asking people to get involved in AMIkids and to be a part of strengthening our community.”
