New Tobacco Prevention Toolkit for Youth
An exciting new youth-focused tobacco prevention toolkit that includes educational materials to discourage use of tobacco products and e-cigarettes is now available.
The Tobacco Prevention Toolkit is freely available and can be accessed here: http://med.stanford.edu/tobaccopreventiontoolkit.html
The toolkit was developed through collaborative research partnerships including school educators, parents, and youth across California and Bonnie Halpern-Felsher, Ph.D. at Stanford University. TRDRP and the California Department of Education co-funded the development of the toolkit, which is informed by current research evidence.
The toolkit includes modules on:
*Applying positive youth development to tobacco prevention
*School-based tobacco-free policies
Educational materials include powerpoint slides, worksheets, and activities to promote tobacco prevention and cessation.
This free resource is appropriate for middle and high school classrooms, afterschool settings and parents planning to talk to their kids about tobacco use and e-cigarettes.
