The program consists of ten weekly sessions that are 50 minutes in length. Through group support, you are able to meet with a trained tobacco coach who will support you during your quit journey. The program is designed to help youth develop and maintain positive behaviors. Participants will get to engage in key discussions that focus on the importance of physical activity, nutrition, enhancing their sense of self-control, and improving life skills such as stress management, decision making, coping and interpersonal skills. Additionally, they will learn to identify their reasons for smoking or vaping, healthy alternatives to tobacco use and finding people who will support them in their efforts to quit.
