School had ended and the summer has begun… BUT there is still an opportunity to be involved and promote vaping prevention among our youth!
In partnership with the Georgia Prevention Project
, Cobb EMC Community
, and Greystone Power Foundations
, we are offering a vape/tobacco prevention program for students between the ages of 13- 18. ASPIRE (A Smoking Prevention Interactive Experience) is a 3.5 hour long FREE virtual program that serves as an educational resource from The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. ASPIRE delivers tobacco prevention education to teens and adolescents at a self-directed pace–students have until the end of July to complete the entire program. Additionally, upon completion, participants are able to receive a $25 gift card!
