Prevention & Intervention

Vaping is the number ONE reason students are suspended from our schools. We understand the challenges and pressures of being a teenager and how choices can be influenced.

We are here to raise awareness of the dangers of vaping and support teens in exploring their relationship with tobacco and vape products.

I am a trained Cessation Facilitator through the American Lung Association's Not On Tobacco Program. I am also trained in tobacco prevention, education, and interventions through Catch My Breath. I am excited to lead club FAV in the Fight Against Vaping and move closer to a tobacco-free generation.

Tobacco Use Prevention Education (TUPE)

Our TUPE program is funded through the Tobacco Use Prevention Education grant from the California Department of Education. With these funds, our district is able to support Wellness Centers with tobacco related needs, provide interventions for students as an alternative to suspensions, support tobacco reduction and cessation and provide education. Students can receive support through staff or self referral. We offer confidential self referrals. If you want or need support with reducing your use or quitting, reach out to your counselor, any Wellness Center Staff, or email us directly.
