Healthy Grounds For Our Youth

Healthy Grounds for our Youth is a collaborative leadership team in Southwest Virginia that promotes the benefits of 100% tobacco-free school grounds in eight school districts:  Carroll, Galax, Henry, Martinsville, Patrick, Smyth, Tazewell and Wythe.

Funded by a grant through the American Lung Association and the Centers for Disease Control, this team works to provide signage, resources and training for school systems ready to strengthen their tobacco use policy.  Healthy Grounds for our Youth also highlights the strides that schools are making to promote healthy living for students and families.
