In this issue of Healthy Living by Tobacco Free Allegheny:
The Tobacco Resistance Unit is a movement throughout all of Pennsylvania to help youth, ages 12 to 18, stay tobacco- and nicotine- free. It’s time that young Pennsylvanians get serious about exposing BIG TOBACCO and its marketing lies.

TRU Youth will have the opportunity to:

  • Meet youth from around the state
  • Help create a statewide movement that will change the way youth think about tobacco
  • Attain and develop leadership skills
  • Connect with youth who have similar interests and ambitions
  • Cultivate a positive, purposeful identity
  • Play an important role in keeping Pennsylvania tobacco- and nicotine-free
Enrollments for the 19/20 school year have begun!

If you’re interested in starting a TRU group within your own school or community organization, please contact Tiffany for more information!
