An opportunity for teens from across the state to attend 3 days full of valuable trainings, as well as participate in activities that build skills in leadership, team building and self-empowerment.

Reality Check  (RC) is made up of teens across New York State who expose the truth about tobacco and the marketing practices of the tobacco industry. The teens of RC work on various activities and local actions, as well as having opportunities to work alongside other RC groups in every New York State county, and as part of a national and international youth voice against Big Tobacco’s effort to recruit “replacement smokers”.

Reality Check teens host events, meetings, trainings, street marketing actions, and more, all in order to educate people and get people to take action in meaningful ways to reduce the impact of tobacco.

Our Goals:

  1. Learn how to embrace challenges that bring about change.
  2. Practice leadership and activism skills in the movement against tobacco use and the tobacco industry.
  3. Utilize the youth voice to be empowered to educate, demand support and help create a tobacco free generation.
