The Amachi Program
Teaching HOW to THINK instead of WHAT to think
The AMACHI PROGRAM is a wholistic approach to providing services to youth, educators, and adults who work with children and adolescents. We offer a selection of hands-on, theme-centered modules that are designed to be a part of a customized multi-session series, according to the needs of your organization. Each 2-hour, single-gender module begins and ends with the AMACHI Affirmation, and includes time for reflection, journaling, and open sharing among participants. AMACHI students are encouraged to help identify and mentor prospective new participants.
