Right Moves for Youth's Program
As a primary prevention program, we give our students the tools that help them define the meaning of graduation and future success, while faciliating their pursuit of the skill set and characteristics necessary to thrive as productive adults. More specifically, we meet our mission by providing, facilitating, and supporting very specific services.
Providing. Right Moves for Youth provides group environments for students that increase their sense of belonging and school engagement. Utilizing group dynamics to foster positive peer support and build confidence, the RMFY program prevents disengagement from the educational process. In other words, through group interaction students gain, practice, and solidify skills necessary for them to graduate with a plan for their future success.
Facilitating. Through the use of curricula in a structured consistent format, RMFY facilitates the development of essential life skills and career exploration for our students. Our curricula emphasizes our students' strengths, teaches new skills, improves self esteem, and leads to greater self-awareness. Our aim is to increase students' competencies for a thriving, productive future.
Supporting. With a qualified staff, more than 500 dedicated volunteers, and committed school and community partners, RMFY supports overall student development through positive adult and peer mentoring. We provide positive reinforcement and affirmation that encourages students to attend school regularly, exhibit appropriate behavior, and further engage the educational and developmental process. As students grow and change, Right Moves for Youth is there to track, guide and encourage positive youth development.
