CHC's tobacco prevention programs teach young people, from preschoolers to teenagers, the why and the how of rejecting tobacco in every form.
Each program is age-appropriate, and can be presented in a classroom, as an after-school program, or to any group of youth such as a Scout troop or church youth club.
All our programs, whether created by CHC or by other agencies and professionals,are based on the guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and present information supported by current research. Several of the programs go beyond the focus on individual health to explore tobacco's impact on our society and environment as well.
