The AYA Movement of West Michigan was founded in 2016 as a program of Children’s Healing Center by three young adults searching for connections with others going through a similar life threatening diagnosis. AYA stands for Adolescents and Young Adults and is part of nationwide effort to support the needs of this population group.
AYA hosts social experiences, shares resources, and works to continuously develop a close-knit community of young adults doing life together and sharing empathetic relationships. We do activities such as game nights, grill outs and life coaching in a fun and casual environment. Our local AYA program is geared for young adults ages 18-26.
