The Role of Adult Allies in Supporting Youth Programs (Youth Best Practice Committee Roundtable 2017 Coming Soon)
In this session, Youth MOVE National will bring young people and adult partners together for an exploratory conversation around best practices for youth and young adult engagement in systems change work. This session will examine the role of adult allies in supporting youth programs to build capacity to design and implement evaluation processes to ensure quality, sustainable youth programs.

Improving Life Trajectories for Young Adults with Mental Health Challenges: An Exploration of Structures and Processes at State and Local Levels that Foster Sustainability
Sustainability of innovative interventions requires structural changes that build infrastructure to integrate changes at the state and local levels. SAMHSA funding seeds opportunities for communities to develop and expand services and supports for youth, which must be sustained beyond the life of the grant. In this interactive discussion, we will describe findings of qualitative interviews with three jurisdictions that successfully sustained supports for youth of transition age and explore how others can use this experience.

Developing an Assessment of Youth and Young Adult Voice in Organizational Advising and Decision-Making
This session describes a project aimed at developing and validating an assessment of the extent to which youth/young adults are meaningfully involved in advising and decision-making in agencies and organizations like those that participate in Systems of Care. Findings from several phases of the project—including key informant reviews, expert feedback surveys, and a national pilot/validation study—will be described. The project is a collaboration between a youth/young adult advocacy organization and a university research center.

Shaping the Future of Training: Needs and Strategies for Supporting Successful Transitions to Adulthood
In this discussion hour, we invite young adults, transition service providers, trainers, educators, and researchers to examine transition service providers’ training needs to offer evidence supported and culturally responsive services. Following brief overviews of Promoting Positive Pathways to Adulthood, Thresholds Young Adult Best Practices workforce development, Youth MOVE National’s training activities, and the Now Is the Time Technical Assistance Initiative, we will engage participants in a guided discussion of training needs and preferred training strategies and formats.

Children’s Mental Health Initiative National System of Care Expansion Evaluation: Description of Strategies for Expanding Systems of Care (Report Coming Soon)
This presentation offers initial findings from Stakeholder Interviews conducted with system of care grantee program administrators, and youth and family representatives. Analyses focus on identifying the jurisdiction-level strategies used by grantees to meet system of care goals and support service delivery at the local level. Findings indicate that grantees use a broad range of approaches. We will describe the types of strategies used by grantees, report their frequency, and provide examples of innovative approaches.

Engaging Youth and Young Adults as Researchers: Best Practices from Two Case Studies
Engaging young people in research and evaluation is a growing trend among researchers and can both benefit the results of research and evaluation studies and have an impact on the lives of youth and young adult participants. This symposium provides insight into the process and outcomes of engaging youth and young adult as partners in research and evaluation, highlighting successes, challenges, reflections, and best practices from two case studies.

Expanding Youth Voice through a Data-Driven Approach: Analysis of Youth M.O.V.E. Chapter Network
In an effort to expand and sustain the national Youth MOVE practice model, a new, data-driven approach was established to support the network with a strong foundation of quality. Youth and young adults outcome measures that promote sustainability through uniform reporting. This session will explore the national data gathered through Youth MOVE chapter annual reporting and explore program models, organizational partnerships, primary purpose areas, and activities offered program success and areas of expansion for a quality youth-driven MOVEment.
