How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

Research shows that 35-48% of college students have lost a family member or close friend within the last two years. And countless others experience the illness of family or friends while in college. These years can already be academically, socially, and developmentally challenging; grief adds another layer of complexity and can also bring about profound negative effects if not properly addressed.

Students of AMF campus chapters provide an environment where bereaved college students can relate to peers facing similar situations. Chapter members and others in their campus community also engage in service projects to volunteer and raise awareness and funds for causes that have impacted their lives. This “pay it forward” approach is not only empowering for the bereaved, but also has a positive impact on the community at large.
