What Are You Thankful For?

Thanksgiving is a time to reflect and give thanks to all your loved ones and the people that are close to you. Here at AMF we are thankful for so many things! It’s impossible to list them all, but we’ll give it a shot…here a just a few of the people we are thankful for:

Volunteers: Nothing compares to our volunteers. Without their passion for giving back and drive to make a difference our programs and events could not happen! They are the engine that keeps our foundation going and moving down the road of success. THANK YOU!

Teachers and Schools: We are BEYOND thankful for all of the schools and their teachers (and administrators). The foundation has eight (8) successful impact programs ALL of which center around youth and their schools. Without the commitment of each of these schools and all of their staff, our programs wouldn’t happen. It’s through their dedication to bettering the lives of their students that we can continue to make an impact in our city! THANK YOU!

Students: We mentioned above that our volunteers are the engine that keeps the foundation going, well the students are the heart! It’s these many individuals that are the core of the foundation’s mission. Wether they realize it or not, these students impact our lives just as much as we impact theirs. For that we say THANK YOU!

Community: Here at AMF our “community” ranges from Cincinnati, up to Dayton, over to Southeast Indiana and down to Northern Kentucky. We are so grateful to be a part of such a large community were so many people help us do what we love. THANK YOU!

Our AMF Family: From sponsors and partners, to those who just click “like” on our Facebook posts or retweet that one awesome picture, without you our foundation would not be a where it is today. We could not be more thankful for your commitment to what we do and the people we help! THANK YOU!interns

Service Challenge Tour 2013

Ready for our AMF Team to visit your school?

YLS is over and Service Challenge projects have begun! I just finished reading over all the submitted projects that we received at the Seminar and you all have developed great ideas. Now it’s time to take the next step and see your service project in action!

Not only are you getting the chance to make an ever-lasting impact in your community by helping others that are in need of help, but you will also have the opportunity to be a part of our Service Challenge Tour! Want to know how? We here at AMF look over all the projects and then pick 5-10 schools we want to go visit this November thru March. During the Service Challenge Tour our Staff will take pictures and videos of the progress/outcome of your project. In addition, we will be accompanied by a special guests such as Anthony Muñoz, Speakers from YLS, or friends of AMF. Make sure your project stands out and makes an impact because if so, we will be seeing you this school year!

Remember, while working on your Service Challenge projects we will be looking for schools that were able to make a lasting impact, have the most percentage of student participation, and are most creative. Now, let’s take this chance to get “Plugged In” to the community and make a difference. We are excited to see your projects!

If you are making a difference in your community comment below and let us know! We want to hear your stories and be able to share your experiences with others.
