This four-hour program educates youth about the short-term and long-term consequences of tobacco use. The program is approved by the Seminole County Courts and is designed to help young smokers re-evaluate their decision to use tobacco products. Tobacco 411 fulfills the education requirement for minor tobacco offenders, put in place by Florida Statute 569.11.
Topics covered include:
- Health and social consequences of tobacco use
- Social influences
- Peer norms
- Addiction as a disease
- Refusal skills and techniques
- Resources for quitting
Classes take place roughly every two months at our Longwood location, on a Wednesday afternoon from 3:30 to 7:30pm. The cost to attend is $30. A certificate of completion will be issued to each student upon completion of the course.
