Smoke-free Teens Programme (formerly known as “Smoke-free Youth Ambassador Leadership Training Programme”) was first launched in 2012 by COSH and held annually. Participants are equipped to disseminate the message of smoke-free lifestyle in their community.
I. Smoke-free Teens Training Camp
The 2-Day-1-Night Training Camps will be held in the summer holiday. Participants can not only acquire knowledge on smoking hazards and tobacco control, but also be equipped with skills on leadership, creative and critical thinking, communication, problem solving, team building, programme planning, counseling techniques of smoking cessation as well as social media marketing technique through adventures, workshops and group games.
II. Smoke-free Programmes in Schools and Community
During September to December 2017, the trained Smoke-free Teens will take up the role to spread and promote smoke-free messages in their schools and community through organizing smoke-free programmes with their creativity and skills equipped in the training camp. The programmes raise public awareness on smoking hazards and gather their support to public health policies.
To commend the outstanding Smoke-free Teens and schools/ organizations for their efforts on establishing smoke-free culture, an award presentation ceremony will be held in March 2018. The champion team will share their experiences on organizing smoke-free programmes at the ceremony.
