Vape Free Schools Initiative Tobacco Free Policy Assessment and Toolkit

School Assessment Image

If you’re an educator or community member committed to helping students navigate the youth vaping epidemic, we have programs to help you in your efforts. Participating in the American Lung Association Vape-Free Schools Initiative means that you are a leader in supporting students affected by tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, offering clear guidance, education, and cessation. Completion of the INDEPTH or N-O-T Facilitator Course training and Vape-Free Schools Initiative Policy Assessment Course will allow you to be recognized by the American Lung Association as a member of the Vape-Free Schools Initiative.

If you already have a cessation program in your school or community center, take our 3-session INDEPTH Alternative to Suspension training. This is available at no cost.

If you need a vaping/smoking/tobacco cessation program, take our 10-session Vaping Education & Tobacco Cessation training (N-O-T), which also includes INDEPTH Alternative to Suspension. This program is available with a cost of $400 per training seat and certifies you as a nationally-recognized American Lung Association Not On Tobacco Facilitator for three years.

Vape-Free School Initiative participants have exclusive access to promotional resources to share with parents, school personnel, students, and the surrounding community. They will be featured as a member of the initiative on the American Lung Association website.
