We the members of Youth M.O.V.E. North Carolina will work as a diverse collective of young adults to empower youth to advocate for their rights and those of other youth at the local, state and national level. We will raise awareness of youth struggles across all systems and work to reduce the stigma attached to mental health.
Youth MOVE NC is an youth Led, adult advised organization. We believe that nothing happens for us, without us. We believe that youth and family members MUST be at the decision making table, both at personal case meetings, as well as in a broader sense, including being a key player in legislation, policy and trainings.
We believe that advocacy and representation is crucial in creating a system that benefits everyone.
