Peer Advocates inform their peers about the harmful consequences associated with using tobacco products like vapes, e-cigs, and marijuana, so that they can make healthier decisions for themselves. The role of a Peer Advocate is extremely important. Today, too many young people begin using vapes and marijuana without realizing how addicting they are. Many youth have no idea how these substances can damage their bodies, relationships, and get in the way of reaching their dreams. Through being a role model and helping peers become informed, Peer Advocates have the ability to make a huge difference in their peers' lives. Training Details:
