We may be in quarantine to prevent the spread of COVID-19, but that does not stop our students from spreading awareness regarding the harms of vaping and tobacco use!
The Teen Advisory Council (also known as a TAC Team) is a group of teens that serve as peer leaders and ambassadors within various schools throughout Georgia. Their mission is focused on the prevention of substance misuse/abuse among their peers. In order to help motivate their student body and the surrounding community to refrain from vaping and tobacco use, the Kennesaw Mountain High School TAC Team starts their SOCIAL MEDIA TAKEOVER that will be going on for the entire month of May! For this campaign, these students have created ingenious and provocative memes on vaping prevention to be posted every Wednesday!
One way to support their social media takeover campaign is to be sure you check out The Georgia Prevention Project’s Face Book page!
If your teen or an adolescent you know is currently vaping and unable to stop, please contact the child’s health care provider, school counselor, or other trusted professional to discuss ways to help them quit. You can also check out some of these resources below:
