Right Moves For Youth’s core programming focuses on positive youth development with a mission to help students graduate with a plan for their future success. As such, we work with youth in weekly RMFY group meetings to help them develop necessary life skills that will contribute to their development as thriving, productive and contributing members of society. The RMFY Ambassadors Program is an adjunct, youth leadership program that works with a sub-group of RMFY students who have shown marked acquisition of the life skills emphasized in the regular RMFY group meetings, and who are ready to put those skills into action through intentional, youth-driven, youth-led initiatives.
Emphasizing communication, problem-solving, leadership, and vocational development and career exploration, the RMFY Ambassadors Program includes increased educational exposure through training, field trips, and service learning throughout the year. These activities will support students as they continue to practice their newly acquired and enhanced skills. This empowers students to be effective leaders both in and out of school, and creates a myriad of opportunities for impactful community engagement.
This program is meant to sustain positive behaviors and continue to steer students away from risky and delinquent behaviors as they continue to navigate the challenges of adolescence. These RMFY Ambassadors will set a higher standard of achievement for all RMFY participants. In RMFY, we help our students turn obstacles into opportunities, and the RMFY Ambassadors Program is another avenue for us to effect positive change in the lives of the youth we serve
