Work Groups

Resources in this section are intended to assist with programs to help prevent the initiation of tobacco use among youth and young adults.

  • The Prevention Work Group works to identify potential partners/target outreach locations, and methods to engage the youth in an effort to recruit new TRU chapters to advocate for stronger tobacco control policies in Pennsylvania and promote youth empowerment.
  • The Cessation Work Group is focusing on the promotion of the PA Free Quitline as well as Freedom From Smoking® modalities.
  • The Policy Work Group leads the coalition in statewide and local tobacco control advocacy efforts and works to identify new Multi-Unit Housing, Worksite and YLAP partners to provide technical assistance in an effort to improve smoke free policies.
