Don’t get it twisted. Big Tobacco doesn’t care about you or your health. To them, you’re just “a replacement smoker” — someone to take the place of someone else who’s already quit or died. You’re not a person. You’re a profit. And they’re already looking for replacements once they’ve used you up.
It’s time to take action against Big Tobacco and help Delaware youth tobacco and nicotine-free. Youth and Adults alike can take action within your communities.
Our greatest weapon is against tobacco. KBG Karnival is a group of nine fun, fast-moving games that teach up to 30 youth about the dangers of tobacco and nicotine.
9 fun, tactile, tobacco prevention and control teaching tools for up to 30 children in grades 1-8. Multiple sets of the Karnival can be provided for large group events.
Karnival Games for elementary students include:
Games for middle and high school students:
Delaware’s Youth Tobacco Control Leadership Program!
The KBG Program offers 2 different leadership positions for Delaware youth under the age of 18.
KBG Force Captains and KBG Ambassadors.
Our Force Captain Program, allows youth to lead their Forces and gain valuable leadership skills and volunteer hours. Force Captains will work alongside their fellow Force Captains to lead meetings and events, recruit new members and work with their Adult Advisor.
KBG Ambassadors focus on the statewide organization. Requirement for this position include attending monthly conference calls and attending all statewide events. In addition, KBG Ambassadors serve as spokespeople for the KBG organization. The KBG Ambassador program closely resembles a paid internship with Ambassadors receiving a stipend at the end of their year for all their work.
KBG holds 2 annual retreats a year. Our summer retreat calls on those who want to be leaders in their community and in their KBG FORCE. KBG Force Captain Training usually occurs in the first weeks of August.
During a winter retreat, youth from all over Delaware and even the region come together to end tobacco and nicotine in our youth because TOGETHER WE CAN! (More info coming soon)
