About Be Vape Free

Our Mission

Brought to you by the CVS Health Foundation, CATCH Global Foundation, and Discovery Education, the Be Vape Free initiative aims to impact elementary, Middle, and High Schools nationwide to prevent the use of e-cigarettes by our nation’s youth. Through no-cost, standards-aligned resources for educators, self-paced modules for students, and a Parent and Community Tool Kit, we hope to create a united front and cultivate the first vape-free generation.

Our Mission

About Be Vape Free

The Be Vape Free initiative is a confluence of like-minded organizations who have joined forces to tackle the use of e-cigarettes among our nation's youth through the creation and distribution of engaging content for grades 5–12 on the risks of e-cigarettes. By leveraging partner resources and working together as a collaborative initiative, we hope to keep students informed on the long-term health risks of vaping. Join our mission to provide educators and pharmacists with the tools to keep students informed in the classroom, and the evidence-based programs that will lead students to make healthy, smart decisions for life.
