Youth MOVE New Hampshire is a statewide Chapter of Youth MOVE National, which is a nationwide, youth-driven, membership organization that is dedicated to improving services and systems that serve youth such as mental health, juvenile justice, education, and welfare. Through our partnership with Youth MOVE National and NFI North, Youth MOVE New Hampshire advocates for young people to utilize their power and expertise to foster change in their communities and in their own lives while empowering them to pursue positive outcomes and a brighter future.
What we do: MOVE stands for Motivating Others through Voices of Experience. And that’s exactly what we do! Our young staff and volunteers share their voices of experience through advocacy and leadership activities to change the very systems they have lived through. The organization engages young people to be equal partners in the process of change, while coaching others in the area of authentic youth involvement.
