What Helps What Harms is Youth MOVE National's Policy Iniaitive.  Conducted over the last year, What Helps What Harms Iniaitive has been led by Project Director Jessica Grimm, of the Bravehearts MOVE New York.  Her work has engaged over 50 of our Youth MOVE Chapters in holding forums in chapter communities, leading young adults through a series of questions.  All youth are able to share what helps in achieving success and what is harmful in their life.  The questions apply to all aspects of youth life including services, culture, community, climate and more. Through a rigorous compilation project Youth MOVE National presents the comprehensive youth voice of the Youth MOVE Chapter Network.  Youth MOVE National uses this document to guide policy work moving forward.  The youth have spoken and we are listening.
