Youth MOVE PA is here to assist youth organizations and the young adults within them in finding their voice and standing up for the things they believe need to be heard.
We advocate for and with youth, young adults, their allies, and system partners. We enjoy this type of advocacy because it works from all angles to help the youth voice be heard. We help youth and young adults understand why speaking up about the things we as young people with lived experience think are important IS important. We also help youth and young adults feel comfortable speaking up on their own and become leaders in their own communities. We help allies understand how they can help the ones they are trying to support in many ways. We help systems and organizations realize why youth and young adult voices NEED to be heard and taken seriously. Youth MOVE PA appreciates all voices!
