ACT for Youth
Let's face it, young people are often overlooked. I guess adults don't remember that it's frustrating to be ignored. Young people have some really brilliant ideas, but if no one pays attention, there's no way for them to be heard. That's why adults need to let young people be more involved and have a greater say in how things work.

Featured Resources
Young people with learning disabilities, ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, or trauma do not always disclose these conditions in program settings. Fortunately, even when facilitators lack this personal information about participants, there are ways to make programs more inclusive.

In this webinar, Dr. Taylor Starr discusses what we now know about vaping and adolescents, and suggests ways to talk effectively with young people about the risks of vaping. The webinar was originally presented to health educators supported by ACT for Youth.
