Actively Moving Forward Campus Chapters connect and empower grieving college students to support one another and empower the campus community to take action through service. Each campus chapter consists of a Support Group and a Service Group. Any college student can request to start a chapter on his or her campus and we’ll help you through each step of the process. ActivelyMovingForward has already supported over 3000 students on over 200 campuses throughout the Unites States. Our goal is to be an International movement, to empower students throughout the world. We believe that one doesn’t just get over their grief, buy with helpful support, one can Actively Move Forward as a tool to a healthy grief recovery.

Actively Moving Forward (AMF) chapters are intended to complement, not replace, other grief support offerings on campus and it is NOT a counseling group. Other services on campus may include campus counseling, campus ministry, residential life, student life, and faculty and administration. In fact, AMF Campus Chapters work extensively with these campus resources, refer students reciprocally, and promote them with the “student voice.”
Starting a chapter of AMF can be a very rewarding experience. Not only will you create a peer-support environment for grieving students on your campus, you’ll develop relationships and skills that will last long after your college years.
To start an AMF chapter, you will:
- Gain official recognition as a student club or organization at your college
- Recruit other chapter leaders and publicize AMF on your campus
- Conduct your first support group meeting and/or service project
We’ll walk you through these steps and provide a wealth of how-to materials and resources as you move forward. Plus, you’ll become connected with other student leaders around the country who have successfully established their own chapters.
