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.
