Youth M.O.V.E. (Motivating Others through Voices of Experience) New Hampshire works as a diverse statewide collective to advocate for youth rights and voices in youth-serving systems.
One of Youth M.O.V.E. NH’s hallmark services is Youth peer support (YPSS). The Youth Peer Support role is designed to provide an empathetic connection from a place of similar lived experience and an example of success overcoming mental and behavioral health challenges. This role also serves to assist the youth with whom they work in identifying their personal strengths and finding clinical and community services and supports.
The relationship between YPSS and youth is less formal than mentorship but contains more formal boundaries than a supportive friendship. Youth Move NH provides youth services to school and community partners, leadership development and youth engagement. To learn more about Youth Move NH, please visit www.youthmovenh.org
