The Nevada County Tobacco Use Prevention Youth Coalition works to create smoke-free areas such as parks, apartments and theaters, smoke-free outdoor events, and reducing tobacco sales to minors. The Coalition also works with local government agencies to pass local policies and ordinances. The Youth Coalition membership is inclusive of a diverse representation of our adolescent community.
The Youth Coalition is always open to new members in both western and eastern Nevada County. To get involved please call 530-265-1451.
Highlights of Youth Accomplishments
Ready Springs coalition members filmed and produced a piece on smoke free apartments, "If You Share Walls, You Share Air." Congratulations, they won first place in the 2016 state tobacco video contest!
Annually we hold a "Stomp Out" at a local theater! It is a free movie open to all. Our youth present information on how tobacco in G, PG, and PG-13 movies greatly influence young audiences to begin smoking.
