YAGR Sponsorship 2019
The statistics are startling!
Research shows that nearly 30% of college undergraduates are within their first 12 months of grieving a loved one’s death and almost 50% are within their first 24 months.
What does that mean for college students?
Research also confirms that these students are at greater risk of decreased academic performance and have a lower GPA than their non-bereaved counterparts. Grieving students report or exhibit many problems such as insomnia, lack of motivation, problems concentrating, depression, emotional problems and relationship concerns.
Grieving students are at a greater risk than their peers to encounter issues such as:
Physical: lack of energy
Academic: inability to focus
Social: feelings of isolation
Developmental: a sense of being stuck
Actively Moving Forward® (AMF), a HealGrief® program, is a national support network which connects and empowers grieving young adults. These young adults support one another with peer-led 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.
Experience Camps are free one-week camps for children, teenagers, and young adults who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling or primary caregiver. It’s a place where grieving children, teenagers, and young adults can laugh, cry, play, create, remember the person who died, or forget the grief that weighs them down.
Actively Moving Forward® together with Experience Camps developed naturally as a reaction to the need for grieving young adults. Together we’ve created a unigue 3-day experience camp where these young adults gather with their peers where everyone “gets it” because they too are grieving. These courageous young adults will come together to create an unforgettable experience as they work on their own grief journey! They will be given the tools and resources to guide them, while also gaining leadership skills to keep Actively Moving Forward® on campus and beyond!
