The Tobacco Control Champions Network is a global project of the Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids. Members will become part of an Influential global network of advocates working to protect youth from the tobacco epidemic. As part of our International Youth Day campaign, we’re piloting a special opportunity for youth advocates to join our campaign!

Who can be a champion

You’ll be joining a global network of leaders in the fight against tobacco, including media, policymakers, and influencers. For International Youth Day, we’re organizing an exclusive youth leadership network. Youth advocates around the world are strongly encouraged to apply, as are other advocates for youth such as parents, teachers, doctors, and more.

How Can I Participate

On International Youth Day and throughout the month, local groups in your country will work to connect you to opportunities to support the tobacco control movement online.

You’ll also be invited to take part in a series of global events including a Twitter chat exploring the impact of tobacco on youth, a collaborative video project sharing a creative poem, and a storytelling campaign on TikTok, Instagram, etc. where you can share your own story of why tobacco control is important to you!

Benefits of the program

If you are accepted into the program you will be joining a select group of advocates that form a global community. Highly committed advocates may receive opportunity to participate in exclusive global events in the future. You’ll also receive official recognition as a member of the Champions Network with a formal certificate that you can use to demonstrate your commitment to social justice.
