We encourage community members to advocate for their schools to participate in the INYS. The information obtained through the survey allows community members to identify areas of concern and develop appropriate prevention efforts. If you have questions or need supporting materials as you begin to recruit schools for the INYS, please check out these resources below. Created by the INYS research team, these tools are designed to help you discuss the benefits and process of the INYS with school officials.
