Media tour conducted discussing how since Vaping: Know the truth launched, the curriculum has reached more than one million students across the country in less than three years.

E-cigarette use remains a public health threat among youth and young adults with more than 2.1 million middle and high schoolers currently using e-cigarettes, according to the 2023 National Youth Tobacco Survey.

Nearly one in four students surveyed use e-cigarettes vape every day or nearly daily, underscoring the highly addictive nature of nicotine, which is harmful to developing brains.

It doesnt stop there. A recent study revealed that teen cannabis use has increased by 245% over the past two decades and approximately 15% of high school seniors who have ever used cannabis become daily or near daily users.

On February 5th, a media tour was conducted featuring Amy Taylor, Chief of Community Engagement for Truth Initiative and teachers who use the Vaping: Know the truth curriculum.

Vaping: Know the truth is a free, comprehensive digital curriculum designed to empower students by giving them the facts about the health dangers of e-cigarettes and providing resources for youth who vape to quit and made available to schools by leading social impact education innovator, EVERFI.

Truth Initiative also recently added two new lessons to the Vaping: Know the truth curriculum to equip students with knowledge about the health effects of vaping cannabis. The new cannabis-focused lessons equip students with knowledge regarding cannabis in vaping products, including short- and long-term health effects, consequences, and risks.

Since its launch, more than one million students across the country have actively engaged with the curriculum. It is a self-led interactive online course with peer-to-peer instruction.

It was developed as part of Truth Initiatives proven-effective and nationally recognized truth youth public education campaign.

In addition to encouraging students to live vape-free lives, Vaping: Know the truth offers resources to help young people who are currently using e-cigarettes to quit through truths first-of-its-kind text message youth quit vaping program This is Quitting, which is already helping more than 700,000 youth and young adults on their journeys to quit.

The curriculum also has suggested resources available for young people looking to quit cannabis.
