Let Your Voice Be Heard
The National Runaway Safeline (NRS) has worked for more than 50 years to help keep youth experiencing crisis, at risk of homelessness or facing dangerous alternatives, safe and off the streets. The NRS Youth Advisory Board (YAB) adds the valuable perspective of youth with lived experiences to our work and helps elevate the national discussion about the impact of runaway incidents and homelessness among young people. YAB members have a meaningful impact on the way NRS serves youth in crisis. Members will also be compensated for their time.
