Actively Moving Forward®, a young adult and college grief support network
1 in 3 college students experience a death of a family member or close friend who died within the last 12 months.
The same may be true for all young adults ages 18-25.
AMF, short for Actively Moving Forward®, is a national support network which connects and empowers grieving young adults. These young adults support one another with peer-led grief support groups and are encouraged to participate in community service events in memory of their loved ones. By doing so, they raise awareness about the needs of grieving young adults across the country.
This program is currently actively moving forward, coast-to-coast.
College grief support is essential for the grieving college student!
AMF has already supported over 3000 students on over 200 campuses throughout the United States.
Grief support is essential for all young adults ages 18-25!
Actively Moving Forward® is a national network of young adults, ages 18-25, who are grieving a loved one’s death or a loved one’s diagnosis of a terminal illness.
Our AMFer’s, as our young adults are affectionately called, are brought together because of this “thing called grief.” Together, united in grief, they bring a voice to a neglected group, themselves. AMFer’s have learned that grief is not something “to get over” nor do they need to “forget” their loved one. They have learned to embrace the memories they hold so deeply within their heart and mind and to actively move forward with that love. Through this national support network, they are empowered to transform their journey with grief into a healthy grief recovery and to AMF through life.
If you are a young adult ages 18-25 or an AMF alumni, we would love to have you join our virtual support group through Facebook! Join today!
