What is Youth MOVE?
Youth MOVE (Motivating Others through Voices of Experience) is a national movement that supports young people to join local and statewide chapters centering youth driven organizing and advocacy around issues related to mental health and wellness. Youth MOVE embodies and actualizes the System of Care value of Youth Voice and Choice by elevating young voices to reach decision makers.
Our Role in Youth MOVE
The Center of Innovation in partnership with CYFD-BHS supports the coordination and promotion of statewide Youth MOVE activities including the creation and integration of local, community-based, Youth MOVE chapters. COI also supports Youth MOVE Members to become involved in training facilitation and program development consultation in response to needs within the System of Care.
