Vision of NOYS
: Our vision is to be the premier national youth health and safety coalition.
Mission of NOYS
: Our mission is to promote youth empowerment and
leadership and build partnerships that will save lives, prevent
injuries, and promote safe and healthy lifestyles among all youth.
NOYS is a collaboration of over 70 national, youth-serving organizations, including non-profit organizations, business and industry leaders, and government agencies, with the common goal of promoting safe and healthy behaviors among our nation's youth. The coalition meets in a round table forum approximately 2-3 times per year.
NOYS is governed by a rotating Board of Directors of up to 21 members with a minimum of up to four youth representatives sitting on the Board. The Board of Directors is the governing committee of NOYS, and has sub-committees on programs, communications, and membership. There are, however, other committees that may be formed on an ad-hock basis to address issues such as fundraising, special initiatives, and other items of business that may arise.
