Youth Tobacco Use Prevention

This program aims to prevent teen tobacco use initiation and promote cessation resources to teen tobacco users.

Activities include:
  • advocacy and training for community advisory boards of youth ages 12-18
  • promoting tobacco prevention curriculum integration in the local school system
  • peer education
  • community mobilization around issues that influence teen initiation of tobacco use

 

The initiative includes issues related to smokeless tobacco, electronic-cigarettes and programs for specific demographic groups, i.e. Point-of-sale tobacco marketing to teens, Hispanic teen peer education and promotion of cessation among pregnant teens. 

This program is in a building phase during the 2014-2015 school year.
