Join us this Friday, September 17th, in Ms. Gentry’s room if you are interested in joining Project Prevent Youth Coalition (PPYC) this year! The goal of this club is to educate teens about the dangers of using tobacco products, and inspiring them to spread the message. This student organization is built around fostering a safe space to discuss substance abuse among teens. The primary initiative is to expose the truth about Big Tobacco and arming today’s youth with the tools and power to choose a tobacco-free life. It is sponsored by the Arkansas Children’s Hospital, Arkansas Department of Health, Arkansas Tobacco Control Coalition, Be well Arkansas, and the Arkansas Cancer Coalition. Members have many opportunities to learn from representatives across the country working to spread awareness about tobacco use, and participate in conferences where other youth working towards the same goal will be present. Members will also have many opportunities to get incentives throughout the year. The Google classroom code is jlq5tqs. If you would like more information about PPYC, the link to the official Project prevent website is https://projectpreventar.org. If you would like to help spread awareness on these pressing issues, join us in Ms. Gentry’s room this Friday or virtually using the link that will be posted on google classroom!
