Tobacco-Free Kids Youth Advocacy Initiatives
Youth Advocates of the Year Awards
Every year, the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids celebrates youth’s commitment to tobacco control and courage to take on the tobacco industry.
Our Youth Advocates of the Year Awards honor top young leaders from across the country — individuals who have fought hard to promote tobacco prevention legislation, expose tobacco marketing to kids and keep their peers from using tobacco. Learn more.
Youth Advocacy Symposium
Each summer, passionate youth advocates from across the country gather in Washington, DC and receive training on media advocacy, policy change, successful event planning and more. During the Symposium, youth often meet with members of Congress and other officials who help shape tobacco policy.
Kick Butts Day
Kick Butts Day is a national day of youth activism when thousands of events take place at schools and in communities across the country. Kick Butts Day started in 1996 as an opportunity for youth across the country to stand out, speak up and seize control against Big Tobacco. Learn more about Kick Butts Day.
