Our "Teens Against Tobacco" is a group of high school students who will be trained by the Program Director on tobacco control issues.
They will join the Director for community presentations and create a T-shirt with strong tobacco-free messaging.
Additionally, our teens will staff an informational tent for Tobacco Awareness Day in January and work on a project to educate the community.
Be sure to check our links for updates on the activities of our teens and the ways in which you can participate.

We are funded by the New York State Department of Health and the Department of Health and Human Services.
WHAT WE DO
- Reduce access to tobacco products and limit tobacco industry marketing to youth.
- Increase the number of smoke-free outdoor spaces, including parks, beaches and entryways.
- Increase the number of apartment buildings, co-ops and condos that are 100% smoke-free.
