Help students graduate high school with a plan for their future success.
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.
Using a group counseling model, RMFY helps students come to school, do the right things, strengthen social skills, and get ready for college and the workforce. In our program, students grow together and build positive relationships to excel academically, socially and emotionally!
Right Moves for Youth services are provided at no cost to the students or their families. We are a non-profit agency, and rely on donations from many different sources to run our program.
