Catch My Breath

CATCH My Breath is currently the only evidence-based youth vaping nicotine prevention program for grades 5th-12th offered in the U.S, with nearly every state adopting the program. It has proven its effectiveness at reducing students’ likelihood of vaping by equipping students with the skills needed to resist peer-pressure and marketing influence by big-tobacco companies.

In fact, program statistics show that 8% of 7th graders will try e-cigarettes if no intervention is implemented, but with CATCH My Breath as an intervention, that number is reduced to 4%.
