This webinar is designed to serve as a follow up to our Winter 2019 Dover Youth 2 Youth Empowerment Training. Even if you did not attend the prior training, the webinar is a great fit if you are interested in the respective topic!
Students from Dover Youth to Youth will present this webinar on e-cigarettes and vaping. The presentation will cover the transition of nicotine delivery from tobacco-based to e-cigarette and vaping delivery systems. It will also examine the evolution of e-cigarette advertising, consequences of use, and activities the students have started taking to prevent the growth of e-cig use – including media, policy change and public education. The webinar will be provided by older student-members of Dover Youth to Youth, and materials related to the presentation will be made available following the webinar with the intent of empowering other groups to replicate the presentation in their own communities.
At the conclusion of the training the attendee will be able to:
- Identify at least 3 core consequences of e-cigarette/vape device use
- List 4 similarities between e-cigarette/vape advertising techniques and traditional tobacco advertising methods
- Describe at least 4 types of community prevention steps that can be taken to respond to e-cigarette use
This training is designed for Substance Abuse Block Grant Prevention Staff and other community-based youth advocates who wish to learn more about integrating youth and younger adults in overall community-based activities.
The event is intended to serve the professional needs of moderately experienced professionals or anyone interested in improving their ability to better manage projects.
