BLAST Youth Tobacco Reduction Conference Coming To Inuvik

BLAST Youth Tobacco Reduction Conference Coming To Inuvik

Inuvialuit Regional Corporation and Project Jewel are proud to welcome the BLAST Youth Tobacco Reduction Conference to Inuvik from February 2 to 4, 2018.

BLAST is an anti-tobacco program that stands for Building Leadership for Action in Schools Today. The conference will challenge youth in grades 6 to 9 to think critically about tobacco products, the tobacco industry, and the health and social effects of tobacco. This will allow them to make educated and informative decisions and become tobacco reduction leaders in their own home, among their peers, and within their communities.

All events will be held in Inuvik at the Midnight Sun Complex. Travel costs, meals, and accommodations will be covered by those chosen to participate. 

Apply today! Space is limited.
