Pinole's Youth Anti-Tobacco Program

Youth Anti-Tobacco Program

City of Pinole - Youth Anti-Tobacco Program
This program serves to connect with Pinole students through peer-to-peer education programs, develop a social media health campaign, and collaborate on events for the Pinole community to highly encourage tobacco-free living. Through the California Department of Justice Tobacco Grant Program, the City of Pinole was awarded to provide educational enrichment to Pinole middle school students on the dangers of smoking tobacco and the prevention of youth addiction. As the tobacco industry targets the youth through flavored e-cigarettes, marketing, and social media, the City of Pinole’s Youth Anti-Tobacco Program is working to dismantle the pipeline of youth smoking in Pinole, so middle school students are properly informed on tobacco deterrence.
