Right Moves for Youth

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 was founded by Police Officer, Dave Scheppegrell (retired Sergeant) and businessman Frank Bragg. In the late 1980's Dave Scheppegrell was a school resource officer at Marie G. Davis Elementary School where he founded the first boy's club, and Frank Bragg was board chair and a founder of Kids' Repay, a juvenile restitution program.

Working together Dave and Frank pooled their experience and knowledge and founded Right Moves for Youth-which was formally incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization on March 12, 1993.

The idea quickly spread to dozens of schools and soon was serving over 1,000 students. The heart of the program was the strong partnership with the Charlotte Mecklenburg School System, Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department, YMCA, Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office, Charlotte Housing Authority and the community at large. The organization has been led by an able board of community leaders and a highly effective professional staff.
