Youth MOVE MN

Youth MOVE MN (YMMN) is a network of youth-led groups affecting change in education, criminal justice, child welfare, and mental health services.

What is YMMN?

Peer Support

Peer Learning

Skill Building

Leadership and Advocacy Training


Systems Change

Community Outreach

How does it work?
YMMN members will meet with their local group bi-weekly throughout the school year. These meetings will offer space to practice peer support, learn about issues impacting their mental health, and how to care for themselves and others. Each group will plan and host their own community outreach events.

YMMN will hold networking and workshop events for YouthMOVE members and other youth across the state. They will have the chance to learn from each other, exchange project ideas, and build a network of change-makers.
