What Is Youth MOVE
Youth MOVE do?
Youth Motivating Others through Voices of Experience (M.O.V.E.) is an young-adult led advocacy organization. Youth MOVE is a diverse collective of young adults who empower themselves to advocate for their rights and rights of other youth at the local, state and national level. We raise awareness of youth struggles across all systems and work to reduce the stigma attached to mental health. We are devoted to improving services and systems that support young people.
We are the North Carolina chapter of Youth M.O.V.E. National. We strive to offer an avenue where young people can embrace their experiences and share a distinct voice with their communities. We are dedicated to supporting and empowering youth through peer support and self-advocacy. We envision a system where the youth voice is represented and heard, and used to change inequalities relating to youth involvement throughout all system levels. We work towards a day where youth are actively involved in the decisions affecting them and not afraid to speak out and share their personal struggles.
Youth MOVE North Carolina is supported by NC FAMILIES UNITED and their staff. Please visit their website for more information by clicking HERE.
