DSM AMP Agenda


 

DES MOINES & DSM Mobile


AMP is a youth-driven, statewide group that seeks to unleash the full potential for personal growth among foster and adoptive children in Iowa.

 

March AGENDA

We are starting face-to-face meetings as well as still hosting virtual meetings.
Please read through AMP's covid-19 policy If you have any questions.

 

Happy March! 

I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the sunshine and higher temps!  I've attached an agenda with lots of information - including council meeting dates and other amazing opportunities.  We will meet on Saturday, March 27 from 5:00-7:00p at our typical location in Ankeny for our general AMP meeting.  PLEASE NOTE THE TIME CHANGE!  We will be having a guest speaker from NAMI talking about mental health and mental illness.  This is a VERY important topic for youth to learn about and discuss.

 

Remember there are still lots of opportunities and events to engage in this month!  The Dream Seed grant is due March 8.  Information for this grant as well as other opportunities can be found in the agenda and the application is attached to this e-mail.

 

Note for parents bringing new youth to AMP: I understand when youth come to these meetings and are new it can be very intimidating.  Please allow our current AMP youth the opportunity to step up and utilize their social and leadership skills in welcoming youth.  Part of this includes dropping your youth off and trusting me with their care.  We really want this to be a space for youth to develop skills and be able to share their thoughts and feelings, and having parents in the room can make it uncomfortable.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions!  Otherwise, I look forward to seeing your youth later this month!
