    TUPE reduces youth tobacco use by helping students make healthful tobacco-related decisions. We provide instruction and activities that build knowledge, social skills, and other youth developmental assets.

    Our team supports school districts to develop and implement effective, comprehensive tobacco education programs through a variety of training and technical assistance, including:

    • Tobacco-free schools certification
    • Annual county-wide TUPE Site Coordinator training
    • California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS) administration and data-sharing training
    • Alcohol, tobacco and other drug (ATOD) curriculum training for teachers
    • Grant writing support
    • Quarterly district and community partner networking meetings
    • Current research on adolescent ATOD use, as well as effective prevention and intervention strategies
