Youth

Since 1997, CYAN has been empowering California’s youth to create positive change in local communities throughout the state. Teenagers in California have been active in addressing issues related to youth access to tobacco, negative effects of pro-tobacco messaging in films, reducing youth exposure to secondhand smoke, and raising awareness about tobacco industry manipulation.

College

Since 1998, the CYAN College Program has been partnering with college students, faculty, staff, and tobacco control professionals to transform tobacco-related norms on college campuses.  Through training, education, and support, the College Program has been and continues to be successful in eliminating tobacco and tobacco industry presence in college communities.  The College Program is also responsible for coordinating the COUGH (Campuses Organized and United for Good Health) Coalition, a statewide movement working to promote tobacco-free college campuses throughout California.

Military

Project UNIFORM creates military-civilian partnerships to address tobacco use in military communities by providing culturally appropriate tobacco control information and trainings to existing military cessation programs on installations; collaborating with military support networks to promote cessation services;  and educating tobacco control professionals to the culture and existing services within the Armed Forces of the United States.

Emerging Products

Youth and young adults are more likely to use new and emerging tobacco products than any other age group population. In order to combat this reality, CYAN strives to increase awareness of the realities of these products among young people. Additionally, our work with this Program focuses on supporting local coalitions in educating decision makers on the impact of emerging tobacco products on youth and young adult communities.
