Are you a passionate, committed leader looking for ways to inspire change in your community? Do you want to sharpen your leadership skills and connect with fellow change-makers? There’s nothing holding you back. Join us this summer at a truth® Action Summit near you to learn how you can make a difference in the fight to end tobacco use and teen vaping for good.
WHAT WE’RE ABOUT
When it comes to smoking prevention, truth® doesn’t hate. We instigate. We’re not here to criticize or preach. We’re here to arm everyone — smokers and non-smokers alike — with the tools to make change.
WHAT WE NEED
We’re looking for passionate, fun, outgoing people who want to make a positive impact in their local communities. Experience in tobacco or vaping prevention isn’t required — just a willingness to learn, work hard, and go the extra mile.
WHAT YOU’LL DO
Engage: Attend a three-day, all-expenses-paid summit to hone your leadership skills and learn effective activism tactics to prepare for the National Day of Action. Attendees at each summit will elect 10 students to serve on a regional action committee for the 2019-2020 school year.
Mobilize: Urge people in your school or community to participate and support the National Day of Action, a day in October where hundreds of truth® activists across the United States will take action and empower their communities to promote smoke-free policies.
Celebrate: The high school that mobilizes the most students for the National Day of Action will win a truth® party. We’ll take care of everything: DJ, games, giveaways — all of it. It’ll be a celebration to remember.
We’ll cover the full cost of travel, lodging, and meals for all accepted applicants, as well as one advisor for each group. Parents and guardians who aren’t acting as advisors are more than welcome to attend, but they must cover their own expenses.
