Who We Are

We are a statewide youth & young adult advocacy organization dedicated to eliminating stigma surrounding mental health while promoting wellness and recovery for those seeking aid along their journey.

 Meet Our Staff



Youth MOVE PA provides an array of training and educational opportunities for youth, young adults, and the professionals who work for them across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Youth MOVE PA staff are trained as Certified Peer Specialists (CPS) and/or Certified Recovery Specialist (CRS), giving us the ability to share our lived experience.



Become a member and help us represent, empower, and unify youth and youth adult voices, to act as an agent of meaningful change, in partnership with youth organizations, youth allies, and system advisers, to foster an environment where youth are true equal partners ensuring accessible and high-quality supports and services across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. We want to create a MOVEment by Motivating Others through Voices of Experience.

In Loving Memory

On June 17, 2022, we lost an exceptional colleague and friend, Zachary Karenchak. He was an advocate, a voice, and a champion for youth and young adults who have experience in the mental health system.

Zack, you taught many people worldwide what it means to be a good human being. Your humor allowed laughter when it was needed most. Your acceptance and grace have given people the space to feel loved. Your advocacy has given a voice to the voiceless and a microphone to those who want to be louder. Your smile was kind, and your heart was golden.

The work you dedicated your life to continues on with you, for you, and because of you. The system change you spearheaded will live in your honor forever. Our friend, we will miss you.
