Research shows that about 1 in 3 college students experience a death of a family member or close friend who died within the last 12 months. It is likely that this statistic remains true for all young adults, ages 18-25, as a whole.
Actively Moving Forward® (AMF) is a national network created in response to the needs of grieving young adults, ages 18-25.
For over a decade, we have connected, supported and empowered grieving young adults to “actively move forward” in memory of their person. These young adults support one another with uniquely designed peer-led grief support events. They are encouraged to actively move forward in memory of their person with Kindness in Action and in doing so, they raise awareness about the needs of grieving young adults across the country. This program is currently actively moving forward through campus and community-based chapters, coast-to-coast.
Today, we also work with the professionals seeking to learn more and serve these young adults. Together, we help to ensure a young adult’s healthy post bereavement growth after a death.
Our Fresh New Look!
We believe that it’s important to keep “actively moving forward” and embrace changes throughout our lives. So we are living that by giving our logo a bit of a positive shift.
The orange represents shelter in tough moments, by giving hope to feelings of grief or disappointment. It brings a high degree of positivism, always rejuvenating us in the most difficult moments.
The HealGrief® hummingbird is a symbol of flight, movement, and in many cultures, resurrection.
You might still see our old logo. But know that we are “actively moving forward”.
So be on the look out as we “actively move forward” with our new logo.
