Coordinator Camp

Coordinator Camp 2017

Coordinator Camp is a conference brought to you by the Youth Engagement Alliance for Tobacco Control, a program of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids.

Coordinator Camp is designed specifically for coordinators who work with youth tobacco control programs around the country, and allows coordinators to come together to be participants instead of facilitators or chaperones.

This conference is designed to bring people together to learn about best practices for youth engagement in tobacco control, share ideas and strategize about how to mobilize youth to end the tobacco epidemic.

Coordinator Camp 2017 was presented by the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids and sponsored by the CVS Health Foundation and Truth Initiative.
