Youth e-cigarette use remains at epidemic levels in the U.S. Data from the 2022 National Youth Tobacco Survey show that one in seven high school students (14.1%) and one in 30 middle school students (3.3%) – that’s an estimated 2.55 million young people – reported using e-cigarettes.

Watch Amy Taylor, Chief of Community Engagement from the Truth Initiative, along with Jessie Fox, Director of K12 Community Engagement at EVERFI, for a special release edWebinar on the topic of teen vaping. Educators leave this session armed with actionable strategies to create opportunities for impactful conversations about the dangers of vaping and the addictive powers of nicotine.

Viewers gain free access to:

  • Vaping: Know the truth, a prevention-forward digital learning experience that gives today’s students core knowledge around e-cigarettes and offers resources to help young people quit if they already vape
  • A Red Ribbon Week Toolkit with additional free resources focused on student mental health and prevention

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to middle and high school teachers, school and district leaders, school counselors, and health education teachers.
