Youth MOVE Pennsylvania


Youth MOVE PA has started a youthquake for all young adults between the ages of 16 to 29 to be active powerful forces in their own social supports and to have a seat at the table of public policy as it relates to youth in Pennsylvania. As young adults, we will represent, empower, and encourage all of our peers and their allies to unite in educating and providing supports through advocacy in order to revolutionize the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. 

Youth MOVE PA's ongoing work includes advocating for young adults with lived experience, maintaining a social media presence, and developing curriculums to advance the opportunities for, and voices of, young adults.

It is our vision that all young adults across the state of Pennsylvania will be active, respected and powerful forces of positive change in the delivery of social services and the design of social and public policy.

Leadership:

We are looking for people between the ages of 16 to 29 with lived experience in the areas of social services such as:

  • juvenile justice,
  • mental health,
  • child welfare,
  • foster care, and,
  • drug and alcohol services.

Also, if you have learned how to have the life you want, have succeeded in transition – being able to be successful in taking care of yourself - sometimes known as surviving the system, we would like to talk to you.
