Meet with elected officials or hold a rally for legislative action.

The group works to empower young adults to let their voices be heard on teen violence, drug use, risky or impaired driving, peer pressure, and other issues.

National Organizations for Youth Safety (NOYS) is a national collaboration with over 40 youth-serving organizations dedicated to youth safety. Specific focus areas include bullying, dating safety, drug and alcohol use, and highway safety. Teens are trained as peer leaders and share what they have learned.

YOURSYouth For Road Safety (YOURS) is dedicated to raising awareness of teen driver safety through teen involvement.

Whether through a PSA Contest or a U.N. march, YOURS will not be satisfied until every leader, not just teens, is committed to reducing teen driver crashes.
