How It Works
The learning engagements are designed by Truth Initiative staff in collaboration with young adults who also serve as Youth Facilitators. These well-trained peer- to peer facilitators are best positioned to foster honest, authentic, and relatable dialogue about the impacts of tobacco and vaping on schools and communities. The program has two main components and can be delivered in a variety of formats (in-person, virtual, hybrid):
- Direct Youth Programming- interactive skills based-learning experiences for youth and young adults in schools, communities, coalitions, retreats, and conferences led by trained peer youth facilitators.
- Capacity Building for Youth-Adult Partnerships- discussion based training and professional development for youth serving institutions and organizations who directly support young people on issues across tobacco prevention such as vaping, nicotine addiction, menthol and tobacco/smoke-free environments or any other engagement across the tobacco prevention network.
