TATU Teen Teachers
What is the T.A.T.U. Program?
Students from area high schools use a peer-led model to teach elementary students to avoid tobacco. This informative and interactive presentation focuses on the effects of tobacco, peer pressure, tobacco advertising, and the positive aspects of being tobacco free. The T.A.T.U. Program employs a peer-teaching model as the delivery mechanism to teach young people about tobacco use and become advocates for tobacco-free communities. Peer involvement and communication are based on face-to-face interactions and planned activities. Planned activities stimulate active participation, learning and role-playing, which provide real world, age-appropriate experiences.
Who does the T.A.T.U. Program help?
The program is a vehicle for a school or community-based service-learning project to discourage and reinforce teenagers not to use tobacco products. The program connects meaningful community service with academic learning, personal growth and civic responsibility. Approximately 40,000 youth are educated annually in the T.A.T.U. Program.
Who can participate in the T.A.T.U. Program?
The program is for students who are members of Key club, National Honor Society, STATUS club, Student Council, or any group that is required to do community service. The TATU program would be a great opportunity for you to practice your public speaking and leadership skills.
