Our Story

Preparing Today for Success Tomorrow

AMIkids Panama City Marine Institute understands that keys to sustaining a productive, crime-free life are succeeding in the classroom and possessing the skills needed to obtain employment after graduation.

The kids at AMIkids Panama City Marine Institute work towards obtaining their high school diploma or GED and we begin the transition planning early so that when our kids turn 18 they have a clear plan for school or work.

We offer an impressive array of vocational training programs to set our students up for success immediately following their graduation or for their future endeavors.

Our construction certification vocational program is supported by the National Center for Construction & Education Research (NCCER), one of the top accredited organizations in the field. It is through this program that our kids learn important fundamentals needed to excel in this field, and the many opportunities available to succeed and grow in the construction industry.


Our certified instructor provides the young men at AMIkids Panama City Marine Institute with hands-on activities to develop skills critical to receiving certifications and eventual employment in the future.

We also offer a vocational program in food service, allowing our students to earn ServSafe food handler certifications from the National Restaurant Association and local restaurant associations. This certification helps participants prepare for careers in the food service industry.


Additionally, we offer hospitality training, including customer service, server, front desk, room attendant, and hotel maintenance.

Each and every AMIkids Panama City Marine Institute graduate should leave our facilities with skills that will lead them to immediate or provide options for future employment.
