Youth Coalition Against Smoking projects…

  • Are aimed at staging anti-smoking activities that can be integrated into a broader context involving the promotion of healthy lifestyle habits;
  • Heighten awareness among smokers and non-smokers in youth centres, schools and communities;
  • Address a variety of smoking-related issues;
  • Help to bring about changes in youth environments;
  • Get youth involved in staging activities, since it is proven that teens are more receptive to anti-smoking messages when they are conveyed by peers rather than adults.

The Youth Coalition Against Smoking targets organizations with low, medium and high rates of young smokers. Prevention is of paramount importance. It is the key to preventing youth from taking up smoking in large numbers.

HOW TO TAKE PART

The Youth Coalition Against Smoking offers a variety of ways to participate, based on your organization’s capability:

1- Participate in turnkey activities.

Turnkey activities are simple and fun to carry out. The materials required to present these activities are provided free of charge.

For more on upcoming activities, subscribe to the YCAS newsletter or contact your regional smoking prevention specialist.

2- Customize your project and develop it in tandem with youth in your community.
