Mission:
Youth MOVE Arkansas will work as a diverse team of young community leaders to create unity and unite the voices of youth while raising awareness around youth issues. We will advocate for youth rights and voice in Arkansas youth-serving systems while building a foundation that will empower youth to become successful not only in treatment but also in life.

Description:
We support youth and adults in building skills for partnership, improving policies that impact youth and young adults, and supporting leadership so that youth and young adults can raise awareness and make a difference in the lives of others and in their communities. We specifically work together with young people ages 14-24 that identify with having professional supports such as mental health, juvenile justice, child welfare or education. Those are the systems we work together to impact from a youth and young adult perspective, in collaboration with families, providers and community members.
