Our 2016 theme Youth and Families on the M.O.V.E.* . . . All Voices Matter
*Motivating Others through Voices Of Experience builds upon the 2015 focus of the PA
System of Care Partnership. Youth and family partners in Pennsylvania’s Systems of Care
continue to actively seek partnerships in all areas of their lives – career, social, academic,
health and fitness – to achieve overall well being in their communities. Youth, family and
system partners can establish a powerful momentum for change by working together to realize
mutual goals and lasting outcomes for lives and practice. Opportunities for youth and family
partners to lead and learn along side system partners are highly valued in our Systems of
Care. Lastly, a significant benefit of cross-system collaboration is that all partners share
personal responsibility with youth and families in recognizing that all voices matter for
sustainable change
