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.

24/7 Nicotine and Tobacco-Free Schools

One tobacco prevention Y Street campaign, called 24/7, culminated in statewide adoption of a Tobacco-Free and E-Cigarette-Free Schools policy. Y Street students collected over 8,000 statements of support by Virginians across the commonwealth to help advocate for this effort.
