Our Story



Meet Jesse. He is the boy behind our program.


AMP L.A. was born out of a desire to serve the community of Highland Park. AMP's founder Josh Buck had a desire to start a program that would support kids in the city. It all began with one kid, Jesse. As Josh began to mentor Jesse he realized that their were many more kids in his situation. In 2014 AMP Los Angeles had its first summer camp where over 50 kids came to have fun and be supported by our mentors. 


In Spring 2015 AMP held its first after-school Arts Program where a dozen kids worked with six mentors to learn the process of film-making. Since that time AMP's program have expanded with more mentors and youth.
