The Tobacco Prevention Toolkit
Theory-based and evidence-informed resources created by educators, parents, and researchers aimed at preventing middle and high school students’ use of tobacco and nicotine.
The Tobacco Prevention Toolkit (TPT) is a research-informed and validated set of curriculums (download a 1-page overivew of TPT publications below) to help prevent students from starting or escalating use of any tobacco product.
The goals of this Toolkit are for students to:
- Understand basic information about tobacco products, including e-cigarettes/vape pens, and the harm they cause
- Gain awareness of strategies manufacturers of tobacco, including e-cigarettes/vape pens, employ to increase use among adolescents through deceptive and creative marketing strategies
- Gain skills to refuse experimentation and use of tobacco
