Thumbs Up! Thumbs Down!

We are looking for students ages 14-22 who love watching movies and have a passion for tobacco prevention!

Become a Thumbs Up! Thumbs Down! movie reviewer while we still have spots available. Reviewers receive training, attend one meeting per month, and get to see at least one movie a month for FREE, all while earning community service hours!


  • Be between the ages of 14-22
  • Attend one initial 1-2 hour training session
  • Provide own transportation to and from TUTD meetings (usually held on the 2nd Monday of each month from 4pm-5pm at Breathe’s downtown Sacramento office at 909 12th Street)
  • Have access to an email account
  • Represent the organization as a non-smoker


Carry out an analysis of tobacco depiction in movies:

  • Review movies for tobacco content and perceptions using the TUTD methodology
  • Attend and participate in monthly meetings held throughout each school year
  • Complete review sheets and provide movie tobacco summary by target date given
  • Promptly communicate with staff via email as necessary
  • Recruit friends, family, and classmates to participate in TUTD


Raise awareness among young people about tobacco use in the media and inoculate your peers against pro-tobacco messages:

  • Share information learned through TUTD with friends, family, and classmates
  • When able, present TUTD information to other organizations and groups
  • Serve as spokespersons for TUTD and the organization (after receiving special training from staff)
  • Earn community service hours
  • Earn letters of recommendation for scholarships and college admission

Our next reviewer training/orientation meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 15th 2019, from 4-5 pm. Training meetings are held at our downtown office located at 909 12th Street, Sacramento, 95814. Applications can be downloaded at
