Why AMF…Because We Get It!

1 in 3 college students experience a loved one’s death or a loved one’s diagnosis of a terminal illness.

AMF, short for Actively Moving Forward, connects and empowers grieving college students. These students support one another with peer-led grief support groups as well as participate in community service events in memory of their loved ones, and by doing so, they raise awareness about the needs of grieving young adults across the country.
