Youth and Young Adults


Youth and young adults have an opportunity to create a better tomorrow for their friends, their family and their neighborhoods. One way to get involved is by joining the R.E.A.L. Team or the Young Adult Action Team.

RAYSAC Empowered Activist Leaders (R.E.A.L. Team) is the youth leadership council for RAYSAC. It focuses on building a stronger foundation of youth participation in the community by helping decrease youth substance abuse through youth-led events and communication. Team members work together to focus on valley-wide prevention efforts that impact their peers and communities.High school youth throughout the Roanoke Valley are eligible to apply.

Young Adult Action Team (Y.A.A.T.) is for young adults 18 years old and older that want to make a positive impact. This team also focuses on valley-wide prevention efforts, especially surrounding the opiate crisis. Any young adult in the Roanoke Valley is eligible to join.
