Youth Quest

Tobacco Control

California is at the forefront of the tobacco control movement due largely to the efforts of its youth.

About Youth Quest

Youth Quest is a valuable experience for youth to learn not only about tobacco issues affecting their peers, but also about community involvement and political participation.

The Event

This annual event offers teen participants an opportunity to network with other youth advocates from around the state and gives groups the opportunity to meet with their state legislators to discuss the importance of youth involvement in tobacco control.

The event has a different theme each year; this year it was “ Clean Air for All to Share: Protecting Everyone from Secondhand Smoke.” As part of the event, Nevada County youth has met with Assembly-people and educated them on secondhand smoke and other tobacco related issues and talked about the actions we are taking in Nevada County to address the issue.
