PARENTS AND EDUCATORS

All tobacco products, including e-cigarettes and vapes, are not safe for youth. The recent increase in youth use of e-cigarettes and vapes led the U.S. Surgeon General to call youth use an “epidemic”.

Listed below are free resources that can assist parents and educators in supporting youth in leading tobacco-free lives.
