Vaping: Know the truth
Student Learning Objectives:
Youth e-cigarette use remains at an epidemic level. This prevention-forward digital learning experience gives today’s students core knowledge around the dangers associated with using e-cigarettes and offers resources to help young people quit if they already vape. The need for vaping prevention programs is particularly timely given that a recent study showing that young people who have vaped may be more likely to test positive for coronavirus.

“I really commend the 'tone' of the modules and applaud the final slides that summarize the key points about personal choice - No 'preaching' -- that's GOOD! Of all the worthy courses EVERFI offers - this vaping one may be the most relevant, immediate, and important one. Great job.”
High School Teacher
“The EVERFI course, “Vaping: know the truth,” helped me understand the material I was learning in class by connecting it to real-life, using an excellent use of examples and real stories. This course not only informed me about important topics today, such as vaping, but it also showed me how I can encourage change in the world.”
Fernando Rivera Intermediate
“Myself and others at the school realized that the resource was having an impact when a student who normally vapes was able to see that it was doing more harm than good.”
