Students of AMF at Penn is the 24th chapter of National Students of AMF. The mission of Students of AMF at Penn is to provide peer support for college students grieving the illness or death of a loved one and empower the campus community to take action through service.
Our chapter consists of:
A peer-led Support Group, offering college students who are grieving the illness or death of a loved one the opportunity to share their feelings and experiences with others going through the same experience. The Support Group meets every other week.
A Service Group, open to the entire campus community, that provides opportunities to raise money and awareness for causes important to chapter members, help others in need, and channel energy toward positive outlets.
Why are we called AMF?
Originally named for Anne Marie Fajgenbaum—founder David Fajgenbaum’s mother, who passed away from a brain tumor when David was in college—and then an acronym for Ailing Mothers and Fathers, our group is now open to all grieving students and the letters AMF are now a tribute to our inspiration.
