Tobacco and Health Education Kits

Island Health Tobacco Prevention and Control has prepared interactive educational toolkits on tobacco and health that are available for loan to help educators, teachers, youth workers, counsellors, public health nurses and others talk to groups of children and youth about tobacco use and engage them in exercises to encourage them to remain tobacco-free. Each kit comes in a case - you can borrow the entire kit or specific exercises from each kit. Each exercise is good for almost any group size and take anywhere from 10-60 minutes to go through.

Tobacco Free Sports – The target age group for this kit is youth ages 13-18.

Smokeless Tobacco – The target age group for this kit is youth ages 13-18.

Tobacco and Children – The target age group for this it is children ages 8-12.
