Community Service: The Tyler Chapter has several organizations that are supported either through monetary donations or voluntary help. To name a few:

  • Wheel chair ramps for disabled
  • amtryke

Scholarships: We contribute to the National AMBUCS Scholarship Fund in addition to providing our own scholarships to Tyler students every year.

AmTrykes: AmTrykes are a national symbol for the AMBUCS organization. We have donated several of these special tricycles to needy children since the creation of the Tyler, TX AMBUCS Chapter.. A qualification process takes place for the child and as long as the AmTryke will benefit him or her we?ll give it to them at no charge. What a great feeling it is to see that child?s smile and how the self-esteem level rises since now they have a bike like everyone else. When they ride they are performing therapy on themselves.

Fundraisers:The drawing for the Samsung Galaxy Tablet was held on July 17th at our evening meeting. David Gower is now the proud owner of the tablet. He did a great job selling tickets in the community and it paid off as his name was randomly drawn by one of the wait staff at Ryan's. Stay tuned for information on our next fundraiser!


Club Operation: An elected board and its committees direct the club. Each member participates in a committee of their choice. AMBUCS is a national organization with approximately 5000 members. National and Regional conventions are held along with training seminars for new officers.
