In the high schools, we offer:

  • Project Toward No Drug Abuse (TND) a research validated Tobacco Prevention Education Curriculum to be taught to all high school students.
  • Peer Education: We train over 150 students as HS Tobacco Youth Outreach workers who provide Classroom Peer Education and also conduct Anti Tobacco School-wide/Media Campaigns.
  • Citations and Smokeless School Day Awareness :  All students who are caught using tobacco on campus are issued a Tobacco citation and then attend a Mandatory Tobacco Awareness session with the school Nurse or trained Tobacco Youth Outreach Worker
  • Quit Groups: For those students who are interested in cutting back or quitting, we offer the opportunity to attend a Quit group or we can also provide one on one counseling with a Community Based Agency or School Nurse.
