We encourage parents and families to Commit2Quit! Take our Commit2Quit pledge and receive a smoke-free resource kit and family guidebook.
Students in charged with possession of tobacco products at school may have the option of attending a Coalition-supported cessation program in partnership with the Juvenile Court.
Understanding the harmful effects of tobacco is can prevent use throughout a lifetime. We work closely with Sumner County Schools and the Sumner County Health Department to reduce tobacco use by 14 to 17 year olds through education including support for the TAATU (Teens Against Alcohol & Tobacco Use) program and T4 (Tennessee Teens Talk Tobacco).
In the Community
As more and more establishments and institutions make their entire property smoke-free, we seek to support their efforts to improve the health of everyone! The Coalition can provide signage, model policies, and even perform environmental scans to the best way to optimize an establishment or campus to go fully smokeless!
Be a Parent, Not a Peer
Enabling underage drinking is illegal, no matter where it happens. Our "Be a Parent, Not a Peer" initiative encourages parents to talk to other parents about their house rules. Ask them not to be enablers. And don't be one yourself.
