The planning process is well under way for the Fall 2022 Break Free Youth Action Summit! Stay tuned for information on the summit closest to you and check out the information below to learn more!
This year students and adults will spend the morning learning about tobacco related laws that impact our state and the legislative process. In the afternoon, national organization, Truth Initiative
will hold a workshop at the summit with students teaching them how to approach peers about quitting vaping and how they can offer support. Youth will learn skills that will strengthen the way they have conversations in their schools. Throughout the day students will do hands-on activities that can later be repeated in their schools and communities.
Students will be participating in a legislative panel at the summit. We will NEED YOUR HELP with this! Please be sure to download and complete the legislative panel worksheet by September 23rd, 2022.
Email all completed legislative panel worksheets to the event coordinator for the summit occuring in your area.
