The Youth Advisory Council's (YAC) Multifaceted Effort on Vaping

The YAC serving D211 has wrapped up their fall focus on vaping among peers.


Along with donuts, students will receive pencils with stress-relief tips and a mindfulness resource guide.

In September the YAC decided that they wanted to focus on vaping. They have worked throughout the fall to learn about vaping, how to prevent teens from starting to use e-cigarettes, and how to get those that already use to quit. During this time, the YAC created a vaping communication campaign, to encourage teens to really look at what vaping can do to their bodies. They worked on peer education, and has a video in the works that will hopefully be shown during National Prevention Week in May. The YAC worked closely with Conant High School when they did a vaping education —learning about what is in an e-cigarette, where else those chemicals are used, and what those chemicals can do to the human body. week for the entire student body. The YAC has a video about teen e-cigarette use in the works that will hopefully be shown during National Prevention Week in May. Conant High School did a vaping education week for the entire student body in October; the YAC worked with the school to make that week a success. The YAC has also been working with Conant High School to provide a donut breakfast the day before finals start. Along with donuts, students will receive pencils with stress-relief tips and a mindfulness resource guide.
