In partnership with the South Central Alliance for Tobacco Prevention, our coalition is working on several levels to prevent youth use of electronic nicotine delivery systems.
Our coalition is currently promoting the use of Botvin LifeSkills Training for youth in grades 3-12 and has grant funds to help implement this curriculum in Sauk County schools.
Botvin LifeSkills Training is an evidence-based substance use and violence prevention program that is uniquely designed to be flexible and interactive. The three major program components teach students personal self-management skills, social skills, and information and resistance skills specifically related to drug use.
Research indicates that the LifeSkills Training curriculum is effective with suburban and rural youth, as well as economically-disadvantaged youth. It is aligned with National Health Education standards and Social and Emotional Learning competencies that our local public schools already use.
LifeSkills Training now holds the distinction of being the top research-based substance use prevention program in the country and has shown to reduce tobacco use by 87% among youth program participants.
