Atrayus Goode

Founder and Executive Director

Atrayus Goode founded Movement of Youth (MOY) in 2006 as a junior at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. MOY is based off a similar program that Atrayus completed during middle- and high-school sponsored by the 100 Black Men of America. MOY was recognized in 2016 as the North Carolina Innovative Program of the Year by the Public School Forum of North Carolina, a well-respected think tank that for more than 30 years has provided trusted, nonpartisan, evidence-based research, policy analysis and innovative programs that empower an informed public to demand that education best practice becomes common practice throughout North Carolina. Atrayus is Co-Chair of My Brother's Keeper (MBK) Orange County, an Advisory Board Member with the North Carolina Center for Afterschool Programs, and a member of the National Board of Directors of Witness for Peace. Atrayus is currently pursuing a Master of Arts in Christian Practice from Duke Divinity School. He holds a Master of Science in Organization Development from the American University School of Public Affairs in Washington, DC and a B.A. in Communication Studies from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
