Y Street - VFHY
Y Street

Y Street is the Virginia Foundation for Healthy Youth’s award-winning volunteer initiative for high school students. Since 2004, more than 9,000 Virginia teens have been trained to engage their local communities with strategies for obesity prevention and by advocating for tobacco prevention policies.

Share The Air

This Y Street campaign promotes 100% tobacco-free and e-cigarette free outdoor public spaces such as parks, playground, beaches, and events. Y Street members have collected more than 5,000 surveys in their local communities since 2019 and found that at least 80% of Virginians agree with the campaign’s goal. Share The Air works with Parks Directors and Event boards and provides free signage to support their efforts.

Rev Your Bev

This Y Street campaign builds on VFHY’s annual statewide campaign to promote water by supporting schools’ ability to increase access, availability, and promotion of water. Y Street’s Rev Your Bev Campaign works directly with School Nutrition Directors, Principals, Wellness Committees, and more to provide free resources needed to achieve increased water consumption.
