Our members mission is to ensure that every young person that enters a youth serving system is being prepared for life through genuine opportunities and authentic youth involvement throughout all systems levels. We help guide the redevelopment of the systems so that no youth falls through the cracks. We advocate for youth to utilize their live experience and expertise to foster change in their communities and in their own lives.
One of FAVOR Youth MOVE’s main goal is to bring mental health awareness to the community . The vision is that all people will recognize and accept the culture of youth, their families, and the communities that serve them in order to be truly culturally-competent. Just as National and State, we look forward to the day when youth are no longer treated as numbers, problems or caseloads, but as individuals and humans. We will all stand as partners: youth, young adults advocates, supporters, parents, and professionals to see our youth become successful.
