Our Mission

The mission of Amachi Vision Corps, Inc. is to empower youth through education, training, and job placement while helping to rebuild communities and their lives.

Amachi Vision Corps, Inc. is committed to developing youth and community programs that simultaneously address core issues facing low-income communities:

  • Housing
  • Education
  • Crime Prevention
  • Leadership Development

We offer an excellent Truancy Program for juveniles as well as GED Preparation for anyone 17 and up.



Truancy Program

Amachi Vision Corps, Inc. has a broad base of collaborative efforts between the school district, all community police jurisdictions and supporting agencies within its boundaries. The program is preventive rather than punitive. Its primary task is to return truant students back to school as soon as possible.
Truancy has long been identified as an educational, social and juvenile justice issue worthy of public and private attention. It has been linked to many problem behaviors in adolescence; school failure, school dropout and juvenile delinquency, among others. The cost of the program is $85, which includes breakfast and lunch. Upon successful completion, a certificate is issued which can be given to the court to alleviate possible fines imposed which can exceed $300 and higher.

 

(SFSP) Summer Food Service Program

It's a FREE feeding program for children 18 and under, and children 19 years and over who has a mental or physical disability who participates during the school year in a public or private non-profit school program.
