In response to COVID-19 and the interest of public health, our participants’ safety, and effective decision making, the Youth Leadership Development Team will continue to provide virtual trainings through the end of December 2020.
Truth’s training program educates youth and young adults on a variety of tobacco and tobacco-related issues including e-cigarettes and vaping, menthol and flavored tobacco products, point of sale, tobacco-free environments, industry targeting and marketing practices, and the impact of these issues in minority communities across our country. Through innovative and interactive engagement, our training team shares the facts, and teaches youth how they can be advocates on these issues.
Each training experience is designed holistically to help youth and young adults learn the skills they need to be effective leaders in their communities, while equipping them with the tools to help their peers reject tobacco. Through our experiential learning model, participants will have an opportunity to reflect on their personal experiences with tobacco and explore the underlying industry tactics that encourage youth to use these products.
Training engagements conclude by sharing current opportunities for mobilization with Truth Initiative and the truth Campaign.
