Ames AMP Agenda



            Ames AMP Council Meeting

      Second & Fourth Thursday (6:30 PM)





Ames AMP council meetings are via zoom links until further notice, due to Covid-19 and
CDC & IDPH Recommendations.  We will let you know when we can get together for meetings again, it's all about safety.  Thank you for your patience & understanding!


Hello everyone!


For those of you I have not had the pleasure of meeting, my name is Taylor Hardin.  As of April, I am the new Ames AMP Facilitator.  For the next few months, I am fortunate enough to get to train under Terri Bailey, there for we will be running AMP together.  I look forward to meeting everyone!


Due to Covid-19 AMP is going virtual for the for seeable future.  This being the case, we will be meeting via Zoom, until we can go back to meeting in person.  For each meeting, I will send out a link the Monday prior to that meeting, which will consist of a link for that Zoom meeting. If you have any questions, please feel free to get ahold of me!


I have attached the agenda for our May meetings. 


Join Ames AMP as we learn about tattoos! The Des Moines Art Center is presenting on the history of tattoos, different styles from different countries and much more! The presentor will teach youth how to draw their own tattoos! All you need to have ready is paper, pencil, markers/crayons. Post your drawings on the AMP Facebook so we can see what you drew!

Ruth Buckels is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Time: May 28, 2020 06:30 PM Central Time (US and Canada)

What is AMP?

AMP is a youth-driven, statewide group that seeks to unleash the full potential for personal growth among foster and adoptive youth in Iowa. AMP offers leadership opportunities, service learning projects, speaking opportunities, and educational/vocational assistance. Amp also provides the life skills youth need to become self-sufficient, independent adults.


Any youth between 13 and 20 can attend an AMP meeting if they have been placed out of the home at some point in their life. They could have been in foster care, relative care, residential, group home, or a shelter. If you have any questions,
