Life’s a Kick! Youth Tobacco Use Prevention Project (4H1596)

April 6, 2015

''The goal of the 4-H Life’s a Kick: Youth Tobacco Use Prevention Project is to prevent children from using tobacco before they reach the age of 15. The curriculum uses the U.S. Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) guidelines for effective tobacco prevention education. Activities focus on the short- and long-term negative mental, physical and social consequences of tobacco use, peer pressure and media influences. It helps young people develop effective tobacco refusal skills. The curriculum is designed to train adults and older teens to work primarily with children in grades 4 to 8 in community-based, out-of-school environments. In the process, the teen volunteers will develop leadership skills and provide a valuable community service. They will also increase their own knowledge about the negative health effects of tobacco.
