Tobacco Education

                              Catch my Breathe
We offer training on the Catch My Breath Electronic Cigarette curriculum. The CATCH My Breath Youth E-cigarette Prevention Program’s goal is to increase students’ knowledge of E-cigarettes, nicotine and addiction dangers while cutting their intended use of the product in the future. Our aim is to inform and educate teachers, parents, and health professionals in the school/after-school setting to equip students with answers about E-cigarettes to make informed decisions.

CATCH My Breath includes active student-centered learning facilitated by peer leaders. The program is based on state of the art tobacco awareness and prevention best-practices and is being evaluated for outcome evidence. The curriculum consists of 6 lessons at 30-40 minutes each.
