Youth M.O.V.E. Oregon launches nationwide technical assistance program

1 Comment | Posted


Since 2009, Youth M.O.V.E. Oregon (YMO) has been operating peer-based drop-in centers for youth and young adults. Over the last six years, the organization has trained over 26,000 people in 24 states. The YMO model is practice-based and supports YMO peer support specialists to provide more than 7,500 hours of peer support to transition-aged young adults each year.  Shortly after being awarded the Best Practice Video Award in the international category at the CYCC summit in Nova Scotia, YMO announced their plans to launch a national technical assistance (TA) organization. After much anticipation, YMO issued an official announcement for their TA program: Youth Program Builder. The announcement came in the form of a video highlighting YMO's latest work renovating and relaunching a youth-focused drop-in center in Morehead, Kentucky. Youth Program Builder was created in order to provide assistance, training, and support to youth-serving systems and organizations across the country. These services are intended to help service providers integrate advanced and innovative youth engagement tactics and increase their overall efficacy.
