SNHS SADD receives grant for tobacco prevention
The Southern Nash High School Students Against Destructive Decisions Club (SADD) has received a mini-grant from Youth Empowered Solutions (YES!) to take on the leading cause of preventable death and disability in North Carolina: tobacco use. The grant was made available with funds Wake County Human Services received from the North Carolina Department of Public Health.

About 11,100 of the state’s youth become new smokers each year, according to The Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids. The mini-grant is intended to encourage youth to engage their communities in tobacco prevention, education and outreach activities.

In addition to the $1,500 mini-grant, the Southern Nash High School SADD Club received training on tobacco prevention and youth advocacy from YES!. The youth group plans to complete a postcard campaign, educate local policymakers on tobacco facts, and host a youth tobacco use prevention event.
