Help NAPO support National Runaway Prevention Month

August 23, 2013

NAPO is an official partner of National Runaway Prevention Month (NRPM), which is co-sponsored every year by the National Runaway Safeline and the National Network for Youth.  The goals of NRPM are:

  1. To raise awareness about the issues that runaways and homeless youth face, and
  2. To educate the public about solutions to preventing youth from running away from home.

NAPO is hopeful that our members will consider participating in some of the activities sponsored by NRPM, including:

-The Social Media Day of Action (November 1st – November 30th)

-NRS is celebrating Social Media Day of Action on November 1st; however, any day in November can be your

Social Media Day of Action.

-Help NRS and partnering organizations raise awareness about runaway and homeless youth issues by participating in this online campaign.

-Mention NRPM 2-3 times a week on your Facebook and/or Twitter page.

-Remind your Facebook friends and Twitter followers that November is NRPM.

-Ask your friends and followers to like NRS on Facebook and follow NRS on Twitter


-On Twitter, include:  “#NRPM2013” for relevant tweets.
