Mission:
To be equal partners in the systems of care transformation by using the perspectives of youth. With the use of creative arts we aim to promote positive change through support, advocacy, education, and the awareness of youth rights all while embracing our different cultures. YMM will empower the youth in our community and strengthen their voices in order to motivate wellness and success.

Description:
We are made up of youth and young adults whose ages range from 12 to 26. Our chapter represents many different cultures and backgrounds, yet we all have a united voice. Through the use of creative arts we aim to use our individual experiences to promote positive messages about wellness in our community. YMM members give a choice to young people where normally decisions are made by adults. Members of YMM have the opportunity as a young generation to express themselves in creative ways by engaging in several workshops to create their messages such as; poetry and spoken word, art and photography, and drama and skits.
