Youth M.O.V.E. Georgia is a program for youth and young adults to build empathy and self-advocacy.

This is a place where you will discover it is okay to talk with your peers about the things happening in your life. And you’ll learn that nine times out of ten, others are experiencing the same things. We are here to support each other.

Be heard.

Who knows you better than you? Many times parents, caregivers, therapist, probation officers and teachers just don't understand where you are coming from. Learning to advocate for yourself respectfully is a skill you will use for the rest of your life. Through conferences, training, and chapter meetings, you will learn valuable techniques to be heard when it comes to making decisions about your future.

Be influential.

You can make a difference in your community. That may happen as you attend meetings, share your story, volunteer, or act as a friend to others. It doesn't take much to be a part of the change – you just have to be willing to be part of the process.

Be you.

Always remember to be your authentic self, no matter what. Life experiences make each of us who we are. We learn a lot from our differences. Don't let anything stop you from being you.
