Dubuque AMP Agenda - AMP | Achieving Maximum Potential

Dubuque AMP Agenda


Announcements As the situation with Covid continues to change daily, we’ve been adapting our meetings around the state to make things as safe for youth and staff as possible—please note that while I continue to send the agenda out on my Hillcrest email, the best email to contact me is DubuqueAMP@gmail.com as I’m limiting time at the campus. The campus remains closed, so as of now, we do not have meetings at Molitoire. We do still have opportunities available for AMP, however! 

Announcements Upcoming meetings:


Thursday 9.10.20 6 PM—8 PM: Hike at Swiss Valley Meet us at the Nature Center to join in on a hike! We’ll have snacks and water available and will be sure to be following safety protocols while out. We’ll also be having a scavenger hunt with prizes!


Thursday 9.24.20 6 PM—8 PM: Writer’s Workshop (virtual) Want to be published? Join us in creating materials for the Writer’s Guild!

What is AMP?

AMP is a youth-driven, statewide group that seeks to unleash the full potential for personal growth among foster and adoptive children 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 23 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, please contact Indy.

The Dubuque AMP Council is done in partnership with: Hillcrest Family Services

Note from the facilitator:


Goodbye I’ll miss you guy I won’t lie

I planted a seed

And now I begin to succeed

Now I’m a rose cant be destroyed

All I feel is joy

Wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for you

I appreciate everything you’ve done for me too

Goodbye is a little different than goodnight

But in the Molitore House I will no longer turn out the light

I’m beyond grateful for this opportunity to change

Even though I got pushed out of my comfort range

Thank you for everything

Even though leaving you may sting
