The Tobacco Free Rhode Island (TFRI) Youth Network runs year-round, with the most activity occurring between September 2022 and June 2023. It is comprised of youth and young adults from around the state that are unable to make the full commitment to the Tobacco Free Youth Ambassador Program but would still like to be involved with TFRI. This network is open to youth of all ages to participate in tobacco education, advocacy events, and opportunities, but nothing is mandatory. Most events and opportunities will occur in person at various locations across the state and sometimes virtually, so everyone can participate. For more information about the program or to apply, visit http://tobaccofree-ri.org/youth-program.htm
Youth who are consistently involved with TFRI will have the opportunity to: receive community service hours; make a positive impact at the community and state level; meet like-minded youth from all over, and make long-lasting relationships and memories.
Although nothing is mandatory for the Youth Network, TFRI encourages the following: attend and participate in events; spread tobacco prevention and education awareness; recruit youth to help build the tobacco-free movement; and be open to learning and working with people from different communities, cultures, and backgrounds.
About American Lung Association - Tobacco Free Rhode Island
260 West Exchange Street, Suite 102B, Providence, RI 02903, US
A statewide network of organizations and individuals fighting to reduce tobacco and nicotine use, the leading cause of preventable death and disease in Rhode Island.
Tobacco Free Rhode Island (TFRI) is a central coordinator for people and organizations working on tobacco control in Rhode island. We facilitate communication, share information, and provide resources and action strategies for people and organizations trying to create policy change. TFRI is a vital source of advice and technical assistance for our network partners, sharing best practices, convening meetings and training sessions, and helping members collaborate more effectively around common goals and policy change strategies.
The TFRI Youth Program is a statewide movement of youth and young adults. The Program will run from September through June. It consists of the following engagement levels: The TFRI Youth Network (all ages), The Tobacco-Free Ambassador Program (ages 12-21), and The Tobacco-Free Ambassador Leadership Team (ages 12-21).
The youth and young adults in our program are committed to advocating, educating, mobilizing, and preventing tobacco and nicotine use in Rhode Island. They are able to engage in workshops, trainings, and other opportunities throughout the year that will better their understanding of tobacco, nicotine, and related topics. Youth may have opportunities to participate in national, state, and local events. TFRI puts both learning and fun equally at the forefront of everything we do and hopes each youth spends a year not only learning about tobacco and nicotine, but about their state, peers, and themselves.
