West Virginia Youth Tobacco Prevention Program



The goal of the West Virginia Youth Tobacco Prevention Program is to prevent our young people from trying or using tobacco products and to assist the youth who do use tobacco products in reducing the amount they use or quitting.

The Youth Program works closely with the American Lung Association of WV (ALA) to address the community needs of the state and to provide Not-on-Tobacco (N-O-T) a teen smoking and vaping cessation program.

E-Cigarette use, or vaping, among youth is an epidemic in West Virginia.  Vaping use rates are rising faster in West Virginia than rates across the nation.  For additional information click here:  WV Youth and Vaping: A Dangerous Combination



Raze is West Virginia’s teen led anti-tobacco movement.  For more information go the Raze website at or get the facts.
