HOW WE’RE BUTTING IN. Young people have a target on their chests when it comes to tobacco. Many believe it will make them ‘cool’ or ‘grown-up’. Some may have seen their parents or peers doing it. While others may think smoking will help them cope with stress or control their weight. Frankly, the ominous warnings of health problems later in life don’t mean much. So how does The Lung Association get through to youth? With exciting and interactive learning experiences, relevant educational programs and a youth advocacy institute.

Youth Development Certificate Program

GET CERTIFIED. Developed in partnership with Queen’s University, The Youth Development Certificate (YDC) Program is the first Canadian Certificate program in youth development.

Youth Advocacy Training Institute

YOUTH ENGAGEMENT is at the core of the work we do at the Youth Advocacy Training Institute. As a result, our programs are created for and by young people (12-29). Learn more about how we’re advocating for positive change across Ontario.
