Fairfax County's Prevention System
The Prevention Toolkit provides suggestions, tools, and resources to assist families, school staff, PTAs, community- and faith-based organizations, social clubs, and others in promoting the well-being of youth in our community.
The Fairfax County Youth Survey is a comprehensive, anonymous, and
voluntary survey that examines the risks and other factors that
influence the health and well-being of our county's youth.
