Youth Move Nevada is Named Youth Move National Chapter of the Year

Youth MOVE Nevada is committed and driven to representing the authentic youth voice. We are passionate about using our lived experience to influence systems change and remove the stigma placed on mental health. In light of COVID-19, we pivoted and continued to support and engage youth across Nevada through virtual poetry slams, podcasts, and Twitter chats on topics that represent youth culture. Also, we acted on the needs we heard and increased our once a month meetings to weekly meetings where we have seen great growth from our members. All the while, we have made sure that our voices are heard at systems meetings like juvenile justice and regional consortiums, and also at conference presentations and trainings with community partners and organizations. There is still a lot of work to be done, and we are grateful that we have the opportunity to continue advocating for youth and with youth directly and in systems.

Who we Are

We are a youth inspired and youth led organization that encourages and empowers our youth peers to unite together to engage with youth serving systems. We recognize the power of lived experience and are also a strengths based bridge to improving support services for youth, by youth, through our shared experience and expertise.

What We Do

A diverse collective that wants youth to be in a position where they are able to educate and articulate their needs to the service systems they are involved in. We want youth to develop self-advocacy skills, create systems change and remove the stigma placed on mental health.

How We Do It

• Community activities
• Youth trainings
• Youth voice in systems change
