Established by the General Assembly, the Virginia Foundation for Healthy Youth is responsible for statewide efforts to reduce and prevent youth tobacco use and childhood obesity.
The Office on Youth was awarded a three-year grant (July 1, 2018 - June 30, 2021) to continue its previous nine-year history of offering tobacco prevention programs to the youth of Orange County. The Office on Youth has selected the Strengthening Families Program for youth ages 10-14 years old and their families, as well as the Media Detectives Program for 3rd - 5th grade students. The impact of the work of the Virginia Foundation for Healthy Youth has been vast for the entire Commonwealth of Virginia. VFHY impact statistics are available here.
