The Amherst Youth Foundation (AYF) is dedicated to supporting the youth in our community though fundraising and special events dedicated to children.
Provide services for the development of youth through our region-wide free Middle School Nights for hundreds of students monthly. These free-to-all-students events focus on developing assets in each person while engaging them in a fun and safe environment every month. Students can meet and engage with peers from across geographical boundaries in a supportive environment. We also host the "Our Place" program for developmentally challenge young adults who have aged out of traditional support programs and want to work with peers in volunteering and community work.
The Amherst Youth Foundation raises funds and delivers needed resources as well as providing programing to support the development of services for children and families. We engage in fundraising to support partner programs as well as run our region-wide Middle School Student Nights and host the "Our Place" program for young adults with special needs.
