Program Overview

The Minnesota Smoking Prevention Program is a school-based curriculum designed to prevent students ages 11 to 15 from starting to smoke, or to stop smoking if they have already started. The program includes a heavy reliance on peer leaders to lead many activities over the course of the program's six sessions.
