Q: What does it mean to “successfully transition to adulthood”?
A: YMO is focused on providing services for system engaged, transition-aged youth. The aim of our services is to help youth/young adults successfully transition to adulthood. This means navigating the system; becoming stable; gaining more assets.
Youth M.O.V.E. Oregon drop-in centers are created by young adults, for young adults ages 14-25. Our drop-in locations are safe, welcoming, inclusive spaces for youth/young adults to receive peer support, gain leadership skills, meet new people, set goals and implement steps to achieve them. Our services engage youth/young adults who are navigating youth-serving systems and provide them with the tools to create change within those systems. We provide support through one-on-one peer support, support groups, and via wraparound teams.
