  • The State Board of Youth Services was created in 1989 (Code of Virginia, 66-4) and consists of seven members appointed by the Governor. The Board meets five times each year at locations around the state. The name changed to the Board of Youth and Family Services in 1990, and it was renamed the Board of Juvenile Justice in 1996. Title 66 of the Code went into effect on 1 July 1990, though the Board was formed and began meeting in July 1989. The Department of Youth and Family Services was also created by the 1989 General Assembly (Code of Virginia, 66-1) and was formally separated from the Department of Corrections on 1 July 1990. It became known as the Department of Juvenile Justice in 1996.
  • The Board of Juvenile Justice was created to ensure the development and implementation of a long-range youth services policy. The Board advises the Governor, the Director of the Department of Juvenile Justice, and the General Assembly on matters related to youth services. The Department of Juvenile Justice reviews existing policies and assists the Board in development of new policies. The Board of Juvenile Justice is a policy board, and is charged by law with adopting and monitoring regulations and policies for juvenile justice programs.
