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
