Ready to Join the Movement?

Start a chapter.

We rely heavily on local chapters to be our eyes and ears at the community level as we work on fulfilling Youth MOVE’s mission and vision. We live in a vast and widespread country. In order to reach people and make positive changes in local communities, we need a large collection of chapters to support and carry on that work! We’re always looking to increase our chapter presence all over the U.S. If you would like your youth group to be a part of a national effort, then complete the application provided below, and send it to
