Dangers of Vaping

Our prevention educators hold 1-2 hour assemblies to present the dangers of vaping, marijuana use as it relates to vaping, and the basics of addiction science. Schools may choose a large assembly approach or smaller classroom sizes. The program utilizes the evidence-based Too Good for Drugs (TGFD) curriculum to provide students with factual information about the risks and effects of marijuana use and CATCH My Breath, which is a best-practices youth E-cigarette and JUUL prevention program developed by The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) School of Public Health. The program provides up-to-date information to teachers, parents, and health professionals to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to make informed decisions about the use of E-cigarettes, including JUUL devices. Through fun and interactive lessons, games, pictures, and activities students learn accurate facts and information about marijuana and/or e-cigarettes and their harmful effects.
