Project Prevent is the statewide youth tobacco prevention coalition in Arkansas. Its members consist of local Chapters across the state that choose to live their lives free from tobacco and nicotine, and encourage others to do the same.
The statewide Project Prevent Youth Coalition hosts monthly online meetings for Chapters to network with one another and become aware of the most current data and trends regarding tobacco and nicotine. They then use the information to educate their peers, community members and local leaders.
Each year the Project Prevent Youth Coalition provides opportunities for youth, including an Annual Conference and statewide projects such as "My Reason to Write" and "Ready. Set. Record."
Project Prevent believes that youth have the power to change social norms and they will support what they help create. The statewide coalition provides young people with the knowledge and support to combat tobacco and nicotine through three pillars: Prevention, Education and Leadership.
