NOYS Resources

There is no other organization like NOYS.  It is the longest operating coalition of youth serving and youth membership organizations in America. NOYS youth leaders take their training, experiences, and energy back to their respective organizations to mobilize their peers to impact their schools and communities.

The diversity of NOYS membership organizations ensures that programs and events reach a range of youth populations that vary by race, income, gender, ability, and geographic locations. NOYS draws its membership from the full spectrum of national youth organizations in the U.S. that share the NOYS commitment to youth health and safety.

NOYS members have participated in numerous collaborative efforts and activities to address critical health and safety issues. Learn more about the many Youth Safety Resources sponsored by NOYS:

NOYS Q&A: Youth ask the Expert

A new publication, "NOYS Q&A" was launched in June 2014 and features a youth interview of a prominent expert from the field of youth safety.

Emma Canfield, NOYS intern, recently caught up with Tim Hollister, author of "Not So Fast: Parenting Your Teen Through the Dangers of Driving." Emma and Tim covered a number of topics, from Graduated Drivers License laws and distracted driving to driver's ed programs.
"It's been found that 60% of teen crashes occur during the four-month span from May to August. That's because during these months there is more 'joy-riding,' which is multiple teens in a car with no particular reason to be in the car other than for recreation. This situation is where we see the most peer pressure, misconduct, and distracted driving," Tim explained.
