TRU RECRUITMENT

The Tobacco Resistance Unit (TRU) is a movement throughout all of Pennsylvania to help youth, ages 12 to 18, stay tobacco- and nicotine- free. It’s time that young Pennsylvanians get serious about exposing BIG TOBACCO and its marketing lies. TRU aims to prevent and stop youth tobacco use through education. 

We are currently recruiting additional youth groups in York County to create their own TRU groups.
