Culver City Youth First Tobacco Coalition

Koreatown Youth & Community Center

The Culver City Youth First Tobacco Coalition’s (CCYTFC) focus is to advocate for stronger tobacco control policies to be implemented in the community to reduce youth access to flavored tobacco products. CCYFTC is working to combat these products which have been shown to contribute to the youth vaping epidemic and addiction. Tobacco remains one of the leading causes of preventable death for many minority groups such as LGBTQ and people of color communities. The tobacco industry aggressively markets menthol and other flavored tobacco products to young people and minorities, especially in urban communities.

Become a volunteer with the CCYTFC to experience community organizing activities firsthand, including: collecting letters of support/petition signatures for stronger policies, conducting educational presentations to raise awareness on tobacco control issues, recruiting supporters, meeting with media outlets and elected officials to educate and inform them on the issue, and creating various media advocacy campaigns. This is a great way to develop your leadership skills while advocating for an important cause.

The Culver City Youth First Tobacco Coalition also offers letter of recommendation after 3 months of membership, gift card incentives, and community service hours!

KYCC's programs and services are directed toward recently immigrated, economically disadvantaged youth and families, and to promote community socio-economic empowerment.

Our volunteer opportunities range from short-to-long term, unskilled to skilled, for youth and adults, and ranging from everything from community research to tutoring to tree planting.
