Youth MOVE Social Support

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.

When and Where we meet?

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.

    Youth MOVE Social Support

    5:00 PM-6:30 PM
    September 28, 2022

    Youth MOVE Social Support is a peer-led by a trained teen leader with support and supervision from a Families and Youth of Idaho staff member. This wellness group is aimed towards high schoolers who identify as neurodivergent, as well as other teens who would benefit from the group. Teens will have opportunities to practice self advocacy, discuss mental health, and form positive social connections. Group meetings will involve lessons, discussions, and educational activities as well as recreation and games. We intend to form a tight-knit community of friends who can help each other through the transitions of adolescence and young adulthood.

    This group meets at the Boise Brick House which is located at the Idaho Federation of Families office at 704 N 7th Street Boise ID, 83702. Snacks and drinks will be provided and masks must be worn inside unless actively eating or drinking.

    If you are interested in the group, contact Madeline Titelbaum at mtitelbaum@idahofederation.org.
