Hey everyone! My name is Maddison and I am a member of TFT, which stands for Teens For Tomorrow. In TFT we like to learn about resilience and how to build it up as a community. Every meeting we like to start off with learning something new about someone in the group. We love to encourage TFT members to speak up for what they know and what they are hearing. I facilitate some of the activities we do and they are not just for fun, they are for learning what we can do to change and help the community. Like I read an article about how 2.5 millions kids in the U.S. used e-cigarettes in 2022. That's a lot for kids to be doing that. Also, from 2017-2019 e-cigarettes used among high school students more then doubled to 27.5%. And that's what I'm here to help; I'm here to help my fellow friends and students to get unstuck from e-cigarettes. Having just about completing my first year, I am so excited for more exciting things TFT brings me too!
YOUth supporting YOUth.
