Over the last 28 years AMP has been able to provide thousands of youth with music and art resources while being supported by a large community of compassionate and dedicated artists and musicians. Through partnerships with youth service providers we have been able to ensure a generation of young people have access to these vital tools to move through trauma.
In 2023, AMP provided over 13,000 youth engagement hours, ensuring youth had access to a safe space during high risk evening hours.

The Artist Mentorship Program (AMP) recognizes the systemic oppression of youth experiencing homelessness and works to engage all voices to create a diverse and inclusive environment in which youth can thrive. AMP is committed to pursuing diversity, equity and inclusion for all people regardless of gender identity, racialized identity, Indigenous status, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, ability, socioeconomic status, and religion in all policies and practices. AMP’s commitment to this constantly evolving awareness will be held at the forefront of our organizational decisions.
