A group of talented, diverse youth brought together to form a board to advise the Tobacco Prevention Program on youth related topics and issues. The council is a group of youth who are committed to being ambassadors for this organization. These ambassadors will engage their community, show leadership, and work together to accomplish the goals of the tobacco prevention program.
For the upcoming semester, the youth council will organize one event his/her school or community for Red Ribbon Week: Oct. 23-31, 2018; Kick Butts Day on March 20th, 2019; participate in World No Tobacco Day Community Fair on May 31st; and attend the summer conference for TNSTRONG “Tennessee Stop Tobacco and Revolutionize Our New Generation” (TBA). They will appear in our countywide advertisements, which include commercials, Youtube videos, billboards, social media posts, as well as provide much of the content for our social media accounts.
The council will not require any more time than other clubs at any given school. Students will meet one Saturday a month throughout the time he or serves on the council. These meeting will last generally 1-2 hours.
It is ideal that the students have a mobile phone as well as an Instagram account. This will enable them to communicate with each other outside the meetings and make posts on the social media pages for #WeDontPuff events and activities.

The general public can be at direct risk to injuries from sharps. If these hazardous materials are not separated from standard waste, individuals can unknowingly come in contact with them. In addition, if sharps waste is not disposed, and removed from the environment, then it can be subject to reuse and misuse (both intentional and unintentional).
