Assessment Services

AMAAM assessment offers confidential and impartial assessment on employment, education and  training for refugees and immigrants in Missouri.

Assessment is the initial process of self-sufficiency. A well-assessed refugee can surely get the best service for the next step. Assessing the potential, extent of problem, service need and assessing available resources are closely linked for the resolution of positive outcomes. Moreover, AMAAM staff provide services that help refugees assess their capacity, potential, weaknesses and strengths. AMAAM develops a standard assessment form to ascertain or measure the need levels. This will help identify obstacles, problems and the strengths of a refugee in attaining self-sufficiency in the shortest possible time in consultation with social service providers.

AMAAM's assessment services can also offer you:

  • Information on higher and further education courses  
  • Information on the Missouri labor market
  • Counsel and information on your entitlement for financial support
  • Information on courses and training within refugee community organizations and training providers
  • Information and classes on appropriate English courses such as ESL
