Summary: Staff requests approval of an Independent Services Contract with the Center for Human Development as part of the implementation of the Tobacco Use Prevention Education Grant. The grant was awarded for $882,750 over the past three years, and was extended through the 13-14 school year in the amount of $317,790. Center for Human Development will provide smoking cessation and counseling services for smokers ready to quit, and will provide information, encouragement, awareness and support for those smokers who are not quite ready to quit and those most at risk of becoming smokers.
The Center for Human Development (CHD) is a community-based organization offering a spectrum of services for at-risk youth, individuals, families, and communities. At participating high schools, students caught smoking on campus will be required to attend the Tobacco Education Group (TEG) tobacco cessation readiness program. Those expressing a desire to quit will attend weekly Tobacco Awareness Program (TAP) classes (also known as “quit” classes) as an alternative to suspension or other disciplinary action (e.g., requirement to provide school service such as picking up trash). TEG/TAP classes will be provided at each site for one 6-week cycle each semester through CHD, CHD uses the TEG/TAP curriculum for six-week tobacco education/cessation groups. TEG is research-based and used for intervening with tobacco users on campus.
The Center for Human Development will also train the identified “Peer Educators” by offering a one-day training in which students will gain presentation and facilitation skills to implement three tobacco education sessions to younger peers at their school sites.
