Overview

This user guide focuses on the role youth play in advancing policy as part of a comprehensive tobacco control program. The youth perspective and voice is important, because the initiation of tobacco use most often occurs before age 18. In addition, the tobacco industry spends millions of dollars every day targeting youth to develop its next generation of smokers. Youth have the passion and creativity to fight back and to protect themselves from this formidable opponent. This guide will provide tobacco control program managers with information on the best practices for engaging youth as a part of a comprehensive program. Youth involvement can lead to important policy and social norm changes, and advance the fight against pro-tobacco influences.
