National Young Adult Grief Retreat – YAGR
In partnership with Experience Camps, Actively Moving Forward holds an Annual Young Adult Grief Retreat (YAGR).
YAGR 2019 will be held on June 13th-15th and will be in Equinunk, PA
Why provide a retreat for grieving young adults?
Social isolation is a huge risk factor for grieving young adults. Research has found that grieving young adults tend to withdraw from social relationships because they feel misunderstood by their non-grieving peers and their non-grieving peers are hesitant to engage friends who are grieving due to a lack of knowledge about how to help. Actively Moving Forward has created both national and local support networks providing social engagement, support, and understanding. The retreat setting offers young adults from across the United States the opportunity to gather with others who understand and find hope in the midst of their loss.
