Rappahannock Area Youth Services and
Group Home Commission

The activities of the Office on Youth are led by the Executive Director who receives oversight from the Rappahannock Area Youth Services and Group Home Commission. Our Commission is comprised of members appointed by each locality of our main service areas. Members are appointed by the respective Boards of Supervisors of each locality. One member must be an elected official of the Board, the second is the County Administrator or his/her designee. The Commission appoints three additional members of the community who have a professional tie to the Office’s work to serve as Advisory Council Members.
