A one-stop guide for TUPE Site Coordinators working to reduce youth tobacco use and empower the next generation of tobacco-free advocates.
Stanford Tobacco Prevention Toolkit (Middle & High School students) is a theory-based and evidence-informed educational resource created by educators and researchers aimed at preventing middle and high school students’ use of tobacco products. The Toolkit contains a set of modules focused on e-cigarettes and vapes, messages on nicotine addiction, information and resources concerning positive youth development, and school policies that provide information about school tobacco policies and tobacco control efforts.
The TUPE program focuses its anti-tobacco campaigns at school sites during the following awareness events:
Red Ribbon Week is a national awareness campaign that works to prevent alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use.
Take Down Tobacco is a national day of activism where young people are encouraged to host events that work towards a tobacco-free society.
The Peer Advocate Program trains and supports students to offer peer-to-peer services to help with student success, health and school culture. Peer Advocates are campus leaders who have a desire to spread a tobacco-free and wellness message to their peers on campus.
Site Coordinators are encouraged to enter school activities and events on the TUPE Activity Log.
