HELP The Andy Maupin Portland Youth Development Center Inc.

 

Hello friends, we are The Andy Maupin Portland Youth Development Center Incorporated. TAMPYDC is a Public 501(C) (3) non-profit charity based in the historic neighborhood of Portland. Our organization’s mission is providing the youth of our communities aged 10 thru 18 with a safe, stable environment in which they can learn and grow into the productive men and women of our future. We believe by having programming centered on the arts and technologies, as well as career development, we will enable our children to be more prepared at younger ages to face everyday life challenges.  Our goal is to invest in our youth today by helping them develop their social skills and assist in their educational needs, therefor providing them with better opportunities in life and employment.

 

We were and are continually motivated and inspired by Mr. Andy Maupin and the ground work he laid in the Portland neighborhood while working at the Portland Boys and Girls Club for twenty-three years until its closing. Andy Maupin’s untimely death in April of 2013 spurred on our commitment to fulfilling Andy’s wish of opening a resource for the youth of Portland and the surrounding communities. Our efforts continue to honor Andy Maupin and serve the youth he so loved. It is with the same pride and motivation that Andy carried that we strive to share daily with our community.

  3. I would be interested to know who sits on your board and what kind of plan you have for the center including program planning, outcomes you wish to see, services you plan to offer and what organizations you plan to partner with to meet your goals. I have recently completed a community assessment of Portland and would love to see this center succeed but know many barriers stand in the way. I would love to see your plan and offer any advice or suggestions given my background in community development.

  4. I am very proud to say that I have taught many Portland students. Their parents were very kind and supportive of their children as well as the community. I am more than willing to donate my time to this wonderful community. Go Portland!

    • Paulie,

  6. I just happen to run across the website in the “Portland Anchor,” and it really touched my heart. This is such a tragic incident, but it amazes me how ones can come together after someone special to them is lost. His dream was for the kids… I didn’t even know the guy but I already know he devoted his life to those kids. That right there is just amazing to me. Thanks Andy!!!

  7. This Organization would provide a historic neighborhood with a tremendous resource for its children. Growing up in the Boys Club system, it helped me learn to relate to others, especially with children with different cultural backgrounds. In today’s society, our children are exposed to a plethora of social dynamics in and out of a classroom environment, so being able to socialize with their peers in more relaxed but structured forum would help many adapt in school quicker. The Andy Maupin Portland Youth Development Center would also assist children that needed the extra educational instruction through after school tutoring, as well as providing them with exposer to cultural arts which is a growing aspect in many school districts, especially with JCPS. In my opinion, this is a no brainer, you have an organization that is truly committed to not only its neighborhood of Portland but the entire city of Louisville. The civic and business leaders of Louisville should jump at the opportunity to capitalize on the interest and passion of this organization. Let’s come together and do the right thing for our city and our children!

  8. i will do everything i can to make this happen PLEASE JOIN ME IN MAKING THIS DREAM COME TRUE NOT JUST FOR ANDY BUT FOR OUR KIDS AS WELL

  9. Everyone in the city and especially in Portland needs to remember this neighborhoods roots. There is no question that Portland needs economic investment. It also needs to use existing buildings for organizations both as community resources for its residents as well as new businesses and residences. The old Portland Boys and Girls Club building has set empty over the last two years while the children of Portland have been abandoned. They have no safe haven in which they can go after school and take part in structured activities while receiving educational and social support that many do not get at home! The city leaders as well as investors like Gill Holland should make sure they consider preserving this specific location for the neighborhood’s needs and not just another business opportunity. Residents need to realize people are wanting to invest in Portland because they know they can make money. They aren’t investing 22 million dollars just because they want to save a historic neighborhood! The Andy Maupin Portland Youth Development Center is a group of local Portland folks that want to make sure the neighborhood’s needs are going to be met by providing the children of Portland a safe an educational place to learn and grow. Make sure you help them preserve this Landmark. Go to theandcenter.com to learn more and support this wonderful charity.

  10. I am proud to call and a brother! Knowing Andy all my life and growing up with him, I was able to witness first hand his ambition, desire, and dedication for his Portland Community. Andy’s entire life revolved around his devotion to the children of Portland! It is my hope and desire to make Andy’s dream come to fruition. I am and will continue to be a driving force behind The Andy Maupin Portland Youth Development Center, Inc. along with many other passionate and hard working individuals. Andy has inspired not only individuals but an entire community and it’s time we collectively began to take what Andy started and build on it so we can provide the youth of Portland and the city of Louisville with the much needed safe haven they need to learn and grown into the talented men and women we know they can be!
    I hope each person who visits this site takes time to read and learn about Andy Maupin and what he has meant to his community, and decides to help carry on his legacy by making a donation to ensure that his dream becomes a reality!
    I will never forget my brother! I love and miss you and will carry you with me each day as I work to carry on your legacy!
