Parents and Community

We know that parents and guardians play a critical role in influencing a child’s decision-making. The Parent and Community Toolkit is created for use at Parent Nights, Back-to-School Nights, PTA/PTO meetings, or other community events to share the facts about the dangers of vaping. Inside you’ll find tools to help guide the conversation and ignite discussion on how to help your community Be Vape Free.

Share the facts, statistics, and a message from the Surgeon General, who declared e-cigarette use among youth an epidemic in the United States.
