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.
During one of the busiest times of the school year, fellow Athens High School students, Jade and Tatum, were able to procure a teacher advisor and facilitate a YouthMOVE introductory meeting. Although there was limited attendence, those that attended showed a great deal of interest in participating in future YouthMOVE meetings and events. After graduation Jade will attend Ohio University while continuing to serve as a councilmember with YouthMOVE Ohio and YouthMOVE Athens. Tatum is a founding councilmember with YouthMOVE Athens and will be able to continue efforts to establish a YouthMOVE group at the high school during her upcoming senior year with support from the county chapter.
