Amachi Summer Fun
Our Amachi Mentoring initiative has had a full and fun summer! We began our summer by sending 17 Amachi mentees to enjoy a week of camp with our partner Life Adventure Center of the Bluegrass. Our young people had the opportunity to hike, care for and ride horses, practice archery, go canoeing, build friendships, and enjoy time on the zipline! Our mentees enjoyed building relationships and experiencing outdoor adventures. We are so thankful to the staff at LAC for this annual opportunity for our kids to explore, experience, have adventures, and be loved!
After the excitement of camp came to an end, we began our second annual series of Amachi Mondays events! These are mentor, mentee, and family events held every Monday evening in July. We took in a Legends game, played an epic game of kickball, enjoyed a pizza party (and some dodgeball!) hosted by Thrivent Financial, and will cap off our month with an ice cream social! All of our events provided the opportunity for all of our mentors, mentees, families and staff to get to know each other and to have lots of summer FUN! We are so thankful for our partners who helped make this happen: Lexington Legends, Urban Impact, Thrivent Financial, and Centerpoint Church. A special thanks to The Kentucky Bar Foundation for their generous grant to make some of these activities possible.
