How do I start a Local Chapter?
Becoming A Local Youth MOVE Chapter has many benefits, including Technical Support from both Youth MOVE National as well as Youth MOVE North Carolina. Youth MOVE NC also offers opportunities to connect with Young Adults across the state, participate in Leadership Series offered by NC Families United, network with State and Local Officials, and access to resources and opportunities across the state.
To become a Local Chapter, we suggest checking out this downloadable checklist from Youth MOVE National, available HERE. This will give you an idea of what is needed to start the process. You can also contact us at Youth MOVE NC, and we offer guidance and Technical Assistance in achieving those goals. We also offer the opportunity for us to meet face to face with your youth/ adult advisors, and go through futures planning.
If you are ready to start a Local Chapter, or if you have further questions, feel free to contact us. You can find our contact info HERE. If you want more info on Youth MOVE National, click here. We certainly hope you will consider partnering with Youth MOVE NC, but please note that by becoming a local chapter of Youth MOVE NC, Youth MOVE North Carolina will remain a separate organization and chapter of Youth MOVE National. Your Chapter will NOT be under Youth MOVE NC in any way, and we have no control or guidance over your group. While we offer free TA and support, we will NOT be apart of your chapter, or vice-versa. For more clarification on that important detail, please feel free to contact us!
