Founded in 1975, the National Network for Youth (NN4Y) has been serving the youth of America for more than 30 years by championing the needs of runaway, homeless and other disconnected youth through advocacy, innovation and services. The National Network provides support to member organizations, community-based organizations that provide street-based services, emergency shelter, transitional living programs, counseling, and social, health, educational and job-related services to over 2.5 million youth each year. NN4Y was the architect of the federal Runaway and Homeless Youth Act (RHYA) and continues to be the lead national organization dedicated to ensuring the Actís continuation. NN4Yís HIV prevention partnership with the CDC, the Prevention Plus Project (P3), addresses the disparities in HIV outcomes for runaway and homeless youth.


The National Network for Youth publishes fact sheets and issue briefs on a variety of youth services topics, an annual report, public policy alerts, and ENews.
