Be a Part of the Conversation has been partnering with school leaders and others who care about kids’ health and well-being, in an effort to increase awareness about vaping. “Clearing the Air About Vaping” is intended for parents, educators, health care providers or anyone concerned about this national trend and its impact on youth.
Kids are wired to try new things. The current trend, both nationally and locally, is vaping.
As parents, educators, and a community that cares, we need to have a conversation about vaping, along with other risky behaviors.
We’ll discuss ways we can help kids to break away from cultural pressures.
The teenage brain is built to take risks. How can we encourage smart choices?
Vaping can involve flavored liquids, nicotine, or cannabis. We’ll learn about the implications of each.

“The conversation was a great start. Vaping etc. is really scary and on the rise.”
“The presentation solidified my feelings of empowerment as a parent!”
“Great topic. Very informative!”
“I was very pleased to hear what is being said and done to have youth aware of the effects. I feel like there are good resources available if we need further information. The key was the fact that parents need to connect, and that kids want that!”
