What is Youth MOVE Social Support?
Youth MOVE Social Support is a peer-led group for neurodivergent high school age teens. Our mission is to help teens gain self-acceptance, self-discovery, and self-advocacy tools that will help them navigate adulthood. Our goals include building community, friendship connections, and trust. While neurodivergent teens are the main focus, the group is also open to others who would benefit from learning and participating. In this group, we will be discussing topics such as emotional regulation, forming and keeping healthy relationships, and navigating life transitions, and participating in activities such as group discussions and games.

We meet at the Boise Brick House at 704 N 7th Street, Boise, Idaho, 83702. Join us every other Wednesday between 5-6:30pm. Check out our calendar at the bottom of this page to view our meeting schedule.
