AMP Welcomes its Newest Partners
We are excited to share that the following organizations have joined as AMP Partners in the past few months:
Boys and Girls Club of Crowsnest Pass
Boys and Girls Clubs of Crowsnest Pass provides after school and critical hours programs contributing to the healthy development of young people – especially those who need us most in our community. Boys and Girls Club of Crowsnest Pass also aims to be a premier outdoor club which seeks to engage our children and youth in healthy, primarily outdoor based programs and activities.
Crossroads Community Church
Crossroads Community Church is an active congregation with a Sunday morning attendance of about 180 people in Calgary, AB. Established in the community of Mayland Heights in January 1980, Crossroads is a member of the Associated Gospel Churches of Canada. A mentoring program is available for youth connected with the church. Youth are matched one-on-one with a mentor from the church and meet regularly throughout the year.
Forensic Adolescent Program, Alberta Health Services
Forensic Adolescent Program is a team of health care professionals who provide assessment and treatment for youth aged 12-18 who are experiencing both legal and mental health issues. This team includes Social Work, Recreation Therapy, Psychiatry, Psychology, and Nursing. The “Recreation Therapy” service utilizes volunteers as mentors with the forensic youth with whom we work. The support that is inherent in the mentor relationship is the basis on which the treatment goals are ultimately reached.
Grande Cache Community High School
Grande Cache Community High is a grade 9-12 public school with an enrollment of approximately 250 students. Our mission is to work in partnership with the community to meet the unique learning needs of all students as they become contributing members of the community and engaged citizens. A mentoring class is available to students.
