Resources for Youth & Young Adults

Resist, sponsored by KDHE, is a youth-led, statewide movement created to fight against the tobacco industry's influence.

Resist advocates for the de-normalization of tobacco use in Kansas' youth and unites communities to create one voice to stand up against the tobacco industry. Youth not only participate in tobacco control prevention activities structured by this program, but they also help design and implement them using the Center for Disease Control and Preventions Best Practices for Youth Engagement. This program was designed to influence both the state and local levels of tobacco control and prevention.
