The Partnership has gotten an almost $90,000 grant for the Youth Tobacco Initiative, beginning next month. It includes curriculum from Stanford Medical School to be taught to local 6th through 12 graders and the creation of a youth advocacy team.
One in five high school students and one in 20 middle school students use e-cigs, according to the CDC. The small style of the e-cig Juul has reportedly caught on especially with young people.
Applications are being accepted for the youth advocacy team, which has its first meeting January 19 at the Partnership office on Clinton Avenue. Get an application here.
