OSWEGO, NY – Reality Check is looking for teens 13-18 years old, living in Cayuga, Onondaga and Oswego counties who are interested in becoming part of a statewide movement to expose Big Tobacco’s deceptive marking practices targeting youth as replacement smokers.
Reality Check youth work to expose the truth about the way the tobacco industry advertises and they try to eliminate those marketing opportunities in their community.
Reality Check is an opportunity to meet new people, make friends and build experience for your college applications and your resume.
Reality Check members learn public speaking skills, effective communication, advocacy and problem solving skills and have the opportunity to work along side adult partners.
Most importantly, Reality Check gives youth the opportunity to make a difference in their community and across New York State.
Reality Check members meet monthly in each of the three counties for planning, training and participation in community activities.
Interested youth should contact Reality Check of Cayuga, Onondaga and Oswego counties at 315-343-2344 #23 or via email at [email protected] for an application.
Reality Check is funded by the New York State Department of Health, through Bureau of Tobacco Control.
