Youth e-cigarette use remains at epidemic levels in the United States. New data from the 2020 National Youth Tobacco Survey show that one in five high school students (19.6%) and one in 20 middle school students (4.7%)—that’s nearly 3.6 million young people—reported using e-cigarettes. The scale of the problem is clear, and the science of addiction points to it getting worse, not better.

Watch EVERFI Resource Specialist, Lauren Pingul, as well as guest Amy Taylor, Chief of Community Engagement for the Truth Initiative and educator, for an edWebinar on the topic of teen vaping. Educators will leave this recorded session armed with actionable strategies to create opportunities for classroom conversations about the dangers of vaping and the addictive powers of nicotine. Viewers will also gain free access to Vaping: Know the truth, a prevention-forward digital learning experience that gives today’s students core knowledge around the dangers associated with using e-cigarettes and offers resources to help young people quit if they already vape.

This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to high school teachers and school leaders.
