About Us
About the Floyd Youth Action Team: The Floyd Youth Action Team is made up of about twenty high school students from all of the local high schools within Floyd County and the city of Rome. We hold monthly meetings at 16 East 12th Street in Rome, where the team works to raise awareness around specific national campaigns and educate the Floyd community on issues such as: teen pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, underage alcohol use, texting and driving, bullying, etc. The youth also develop strategies needed to promote positive youth development and involvement within their community.

Mission
The mission of the Floyd County Youth Action Team is to mobilize and equip the Floyd Community with information and strategies needed to promote positive youth development and involvement, improve community conditions, and address issues associated with the community.

Vision
The vision of the Floyd County Youth Action Team is to set a prime example, be role models, and inform teens of the consequences that will follow their actions.
