In establishing YAMM, the first people thought about was the parents. We cannot accomplish our mission without the assistance of parents. Parents work and are not able to get their youth where they need to be for programs. There are a lot of tardies and absences due to parents not being able to get off work to get youth to a program's destination. Therefore, we made it our mission to make sure youth do not have to be transported by parent way.
We operate as a mobile youth program, delivering our programs community-wide to illuminate transportation issues before they start. We made it possible for parents and for youth to stay safe in their neighborhood and get the help they need from our programs.
What we believe in
We stick to our truths and commitments, providing everyone with open communication and honesty.
Every investment and decision we make has our participants, volunteers, and supporters at the center. Our thoughts go into the needs of everyone involved.
We believe every decision and every work has to be fulfilled with teamwork. No one person can reach greater heights doing everything by themself.
Having a code of morality is the best place to instill the self maturity one needs to handle obstacles of life. We encourage self-discipline that leads to successful lives.
What may seem impossible is, possible.
We mentor young men and ladies ages 12-17 through active learning behavior mentor programs designed for:
Develop Employment Skills
To Reduce Youth Living in Poverty
Improve Access To Nutritious Food
Decent Work & Economic Growth
Reduce Unemployed and Uneducated Youth
Advance Youth Employment
Responsible Consumption & Production
To Improve Youth Education
Promote Female Leadership
By focusing on these areas, we can guide young men and ladies in understanding what moral standards are and how to utilize them properly. We also encourage and promote healthier living through lifestyle recognition of the pros and cons and how to adjust them to positive actions.
Kamm is the founder and president of YAMM. Dedicated to assisting and guiding people she meets, Kamm’s passion is to see the underserved succeed through education and development becoming leaders.
Mentoring since age 15, Kamm received her B.S. in Criminal Justice, Cum Laude. Her passion forces her to be effective in the life of children. Kamm foresaw detained and at-risk youth becoming law-abiding citizens although views from society did not look promising. Therefore, Kamm founded her passion to see -- Youth Achieving Moral Maturity (YAMM).
Kamm believes over half of the young boys and girls she meets are at risk of failing in life and can be helped before it’s too late. Furthermore, believes nothing is too difficult to turn around to positive, “Making what seems impossible, possible”. Therefore, Kamm "Walk by faith, not by sight". She plans to develop our youth to moral maturity, and soon, open a female-based Adult Childhood Sexual Abuse Healing practice for survivors like herself.
