This blog is a landing place to maintain a public record of the important advocacy work of YouthMOVE Athens (county) Ohio. YouthMOVE is a national organization organized with state, regional and county chapters. Athens, Meigs and Vinton counties make up our regional chapter. Youth from Athens County may participate in local, regional, state and occasionally national advocacy campaigns.
Representatives from many youth-serving agencies, the director of Athens Family and Children First Council, the Athens YouthMOVE adult coordinator and a YouthMOVE Ohio youth councilmember met at the Athens County Library. Jade and her mother introduced YouthMOVE to the supportive agencies. Of high priority is identifying & recruiting more Athens County youth to participate in future steering committee meetings.
