Mission Statement

The Amala Foundation unites youth from all walks of life and inspires them to grow as individuals and as leaders in service to humanity.

Description

Since 2001, the Amala Foundation has offered over 3,500 youth a unique blend of Social Emotional Learning (SEL) programs and cross-cultural connection aimed at providing the next generation of leaders with a model of inclusion, compassion, commitment and service to their communities.

Amala’s programs focus on young individuals including refugees and immigrant youth, many of whom have experienced war, abuse, neglect, extreme poverty, child labor, and gang violence; and provide them the opportunity to unite with peers from vastly different backgrounds and participate in meaningful dialogue, community building exercises, and leadership development.

Research shows that SEL programs such as Amala’s have proven extremely successful in helping youth:

  • Heal from trauma and abuse and develop a positive identity.
  • Reduce conduct problems and emotional distress.
  • Improve social-emotional skills and personal attitudes about self and others.
  • Enhance academic performance and reduce drop out rates.

Amala’s programs are open to all youth, regardless of their ability to pay; and 80% of their participants receive scholarships.
