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.

WHO CAN COME?

Any youth between 13 and 21 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:

Another great meeting at the Hillcrest campus! We did our poetry slam and had a few that folx wanted to share with y’all, so we’ll list one here. Other than that, stay tuned for some exciting changes happening with the Dubuque council! Also, we’re looking for youth to come with us for the Future Fest in Davenport to help staff a booth and/or to explore resources—see the other attachment for more info.


Goodbye

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

Goodbye
