Making a difference in our community!

Our Service


AMBUCS is the FUN way to serve! Our organization provides fun, innovative service opportunities for people who want to help their community but do not necessarily have a lot of time to do so. Want to help? Get Involved.

 

Helping our community:

 

We enjoy participating in events such as building wheelchair ramps, community clean up, etc.

 

AmTryke Program:

 

For years, the AmTryke has benefited and delighted children with disabilities.  It has allowed them to experience the pleasure of riding freely among peers without disabilities.  Physical therapists acknowledge the AmTryke's therapeutic benefits, citing improved motor skills and strength development.  In fact, the AmTryke was inspired by a therapist. Check out the AmTrykes!

 

Scholarships Program:

 

AMBUCS offers scholarships to students (U.S. citizens) in their junior/senior year in a bachelor's degree program, or a graduate program leading to a master's or doctoral degree.

Awards range from $500 to $1,500 annually.  Additionally, there is one two-year award in the amount of $6,000.  Approximately $225,000 is awarded nationally.  Award monies are deposited each semester into the student's credit account with the financial aid office of the educational institution. Qualifying students must be accepted in an accredited program by the appropriate health therapy profession authority in physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech language pathology, and hearing audiology.  Assistant programs are not eligible.

Awards are based on financial need, US citizenship, commitment to local community, demonstrated academic accomplishment, character for compassion and integrity, and career objectives.

AMBUCS accepts applications from January 15th until April 15th each year.  Scholarship recipient semi-finalists will be contacted after April 15th.

 

 

Fundraising:

 

All of the projects AMBUCS completes require not only our time but also money. The truth is that without monetary donations we would not be able to offer these children the therapy bikes they need or help in the training of therapy workers. We support these efforts through private donations, business sponsorships and donations, and member efforts. We host events throughout the year such as our Pancake Breakfast and Big Hat Golf Tournament.
