Meet Our President/CEO
Founder and President of Youth Achieving Moral Maturity
Kamm is the founder and president of YAMM. Kamm is dedicated to assisting and guiding those she meets. She has a passion for the needs and development of young children and youth adults as well as parents and individual adults. She has been mentoring since age 15 in her community.
Kamm received her B.S. in Criminal Justice, Cum Laude, from North Carolina Central University. She had always wanted to make a difference in the life of children. During her studies, she foresaw detained and at-risk youth and young adults becoming law-abiding citizens although views from society did not look promising. Therefore, Kamm created, planned, and implemented her passion to see-- Youth Achieving Moral Maturity.
Kamm believes over half of the young men and ladies who are at risk of offending can be turned around with the guidance she, her staff, and volunteers provide. She also believes there is nothing too difficult for God to turn around from negative to positive, where the impossible is possible. Therefore, Kamm's motto is "Walk by faith, not by sight". She plans to take our young men and ladies to moral maturity, and in the near future, establish a female-based sexual abuse counseling service for youth ladies ages 10-15.
