Learn About the Dangers of Vaping

November 7, 2019

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

 

 

Could you spot a vaping device? Do you understand the chemicals involved in vaping? Have you heard how dangerous vaping can be? These are a few of the questions that will be answered at an upcoming training on Tuesday, November 12 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at Notre Dame School in Cresco.

 

The training is being hosted by Youth Mentoring at Helping Services for Youth & Families. This topic was selected by mentors as they want to learn more about this dangerous trend. The training is open to everyone that would like to learn more about the dangers, health consequences, and statistics related to vaping.

 

The presenter is Tessa Willie, Director of Prevention Services at Helping Services. Tessa shares, “We will be discussing local statistics about the heavy use of vaping by area youth. I am excited to give tips for talking with youth and sharing resources to help them quit.”

 

Youth Mentoring in Allamakee, Howard, and Winneshiek Counties provides an adult mentor who spends a minimum of four hours a month with a youth, ages 6–16. Currently, 50 youth are enjoying time with a mentor, and 19 youth are waiting for a mentor. For information on how you can be part of the excitement of mentoring at Helping Services, contact Kathy or Colinne at (563) 387-1720, mentoring@helpingservices.org, or online at www.helpingservices.org/mentoring.
