Welcome to Youth M.O.V.E. (Motivating Others through Voices of Experience) Jacksonville!

We are youth run organization recognized in Florida and nationally as a voice

on behalf of children and youth with emotional and/or behavioral challenges.

Our mission is to support children and youth who have emotional and/or

behavioral challenges through education, technical assistance and advocacy.

We understand that although we have diagnoses,

these diagnoses do not define us. They are just a small part of who we are.

We the members of Youth M.O.V.E. National will work as a diverse collective to unite the voices and causes of youth while raising awareness around youth issues. We will advocate for youth rights and voice in mental health and the other systems that serve them, for the purpose of empowering youth to be equal partners in the process of change.

Youth M.O.V.E. National works toward the day when all people will recognize and accept the culture of youth, their families, and the communities that serve them in order to be truly culturally-competent. Youth M.O.V.E. National looks forward to the day when youth are no longer treated as numbers, problems or caseloads, but as individuals and humans. We will all stand as partners: youth, youth advocates, supporters, parents, and professionals to see our youth become successful.
