Outrage Fall Retreat

We greatly appreciate the support of Utah County Health Department on behalf of OUTRAGE! Their anti-tobacco and substance misuse prevention youth group as we work together to help our youth thrive in a healthier environment as they prepare for their futures. Tobacco companies study the tastes and desires of young potential customers. They target young people in their advertising and promotion and are successful in reaching children and adolescents. Join the fight in fighting back against BIG Tobacco targeting youth. Our kick-off event for this school year will be October 26. The event will run from 8:30a - 5:00p in Provo at 151 South University Ave. Youth voices add a unique perspective and skill set when working towards creating healthier environments! Youth involvement matters! This is the link to the event
