What is the Young Adult Leadership Retreat?

The Young Adult Leadership Retreat provides professional development and networking opportunities for Young Adults serving in a peer-leadership role in the areas of mental health and co-occurring substance use disorders. The Young Adult Leadership Retreat offers the opportunity for unique and personalized growth and development for these individuals in order to better equip them to use their lived experience to offer support, education, or advocacy to youth, other young adults, parents/caregivers, or to inform and support system partners.

Each year’s retreat focuses on specific content or topic areas in response to needs expressed by our community. You can always expect:

  • Connection, Networking, and Resource Sharing
  • Targeted Content Learning
  • The opportunity to offer input on the direction on Youth MOVE Virginia
