Tobacco Use Prevention Education (TUPE)
Tobacco Use Prevention Education Programs
NCSD's Tobacco Use Prevention Education (TUPE) Program activities are supported through TUPE Tier II Consortium Grant led by Nevada County Superintendent of Schools (NCSoS). The purpose of the TUPE program is to reduce youth tobacco use by helping young people make healthful tobacco-related decisions through tobacco specific, research-validated educational instruction and activities that build knowledge as well as social skills and youth development assets. Collaboration with community-based tobacco control program is an integral part of program planning. The Program is designed to address prevention education, intervention, tobacco cessation and positive youth development.
NCSoS provides an extensive website on tobacco use prevention and education, with wide range of resources for parents, educators, students and community. Please follow the link to access.
