Get started with YOVASO
Youth Advisory Council (YAC)
YOVASO offers three YAC groups across the state based in Richmond, Roanoke and the Shenandoah Valley. Members of YAC are student leaders in their school’s YOVASO clubs who want to assist and advise YOVASO on statewide initiatives. YAC groups meet each month to discuss ideas for statewide campaigns and retreats.
The YOVASO Advisory Board is made up of school resource officers, state troopers, community leaders and prevention specialists. The board’s mission is to guide the long-range development of YOVASO and to work collaboratively on effective prevention strategies to reduce motor vehicle crashes, injuries and fatalities among young drivers in Virginia. The board meets quarterly. This is an effective opportunity for concerned adults to combine prevention efforts and share resources.
