The American Youth Foundation inspires people discover and develop the best in who they are, to seek balance in mental, physical, social and spiritual living, and to create inclusive, caring communities. Thousands of youth engage in programs year-round at our beautiful properties in New Hampshire (AYF Merrowvista) and Michigan (AYF Miniwanca). People from across the country and around the world come to our facilities for community and school programs, summer camps and leadership conferences. Our programs inspire individuals and groups to put their best into action and to make a difference in big and small ways in their communities and in the wider world. We are a nonprofit youth development organization, whose mission has provided the foundation for all that we do since 1925.
