Youth Tobacco Education Program

 

Our youth tobacco education program, titled “HURU?” (or rather Who Are You?), is a multi-media presentation that is offered to middle schools throughout central Indiana.  This interactive presentation is led by Little Red Door staff and aims to educate students on the facts about the tobacco industry and the dangers associated with tobacco use; while encouraging them to support a tobacco-free identity.

 

What to expect:

  • Program is offered FREE of charge
  • Held within a single class period (can present in multiple periods throughout the day)
  • Presentation highlights real life stories of Indiana cancer patients
  • Active student participation throughout presentation

“I think this was an awesome presentation and it definitely helped me decide to be tobacco free!” – Guion Creek Middle School student

In the 2015-2016 school year, data showed a 26% increase in knowledge among students.  Click Here for a full data summary.
