Right Moves For Youth

In our society and across our community, many young people contend with social, emotional and mental health barriers that can potentially derail their pathway to success. This is dramatically true for youth who find themselves, at no fault of their own, on the receiving end of economic disparity and hardship. However, research indicates that youth can thrive when they build positive, long-lasting relationships with peers and mentors.

Right Moves For Youth (RMFY) is a school-based, youth development and student support program focused on helping teens develop the skills to succeed in school and life. In collaboration with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS), the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department (CMPD), the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) and other community partners, we empower youth to get an education and pursue a better quality of life. Our mission is to provide resources and guidance necessary to help students not only graduate high school, but to have firmly in place, a plan for their future success.
