AMA Omaha Cares 2021/22
AMA Omaha is thrilled to partner with YES Omaha for the 2021/22 term.
Youth Emergency Services (YES) assists youth experiencing homelessness and near homelessness by providing critically-needed resources which support them in their desire to be self-sufficient. Their overall goal is to help youth in crisis get back on their feet in whatever ways they can. After meeting their immediate needs for food, shelter, clothing and safety, YES creates a support system to help these youth flourish.
ABOUT AMA CARES
Each year, AMA Omaha gives back to our community through our AMA Omaha Cares Initiative. We adopt a local charity partner for the board year and offer that organization marketing support, fundraising and more. AMA Omaha is committed to bringing positivity and change to our community. We believe in making an impact, connecting to others and improving the lives around us.
2020-2021 AMA Omaha Cares Partner: Nebraska Tech Collaborative
The Nebraska Tech Collaborative (NTC) – an Aksarben workforce initiative – is business-led, and comprised of over 100 business, government, education, and non-profit partners all working together to drive results and scale to build a world-class tech ecosystem in Nebraska.
Tech jobs are found in every company and industry sector. Agriculture, Nebraska’s biggest industry, has a significant tech component and is a huge growth sector for careers in tech. But tech jobs in Omaha, Lincoln, and Nebraska have grown more slowly than other, similar cities and states. The tech sector is the fastest-growing sector in the country and world. But the reality is that the fastest-growing sector is leaving and will continue to leave Nebraska behind if we don’t act now.
The NTC is going to work to increase the number of tech jobs in Nebraska by 10,000 and the number of new tech companies in Nebraska by 300 by 2025. We need everyone involved – businesses, government, educators, non-profits – all working together as one with one message to drive scale.
2019-2020: The Heart Ministry Center
The HMC mission is to provide food, clothing, healthcare and a way forward to people severely affected by poverty in the Omaha area.
In February 202o, AMA Omaha partnered up with ROAST – Aksarben/A Hill of Beans Coffee Roasters to support HMC during a Valentine’s Pot Pack sale! We are thankful for valuable community partners like these who support the Center and help us spread the word of our mission – #DignityForAll.
