Texas Youth Tobacco Awareness Program

The Texas Youth Tobacco Awareness Program (TYTAP) provides awareness classes for minors that teach them information and skills necessary to quit tobacco use and avoid using tobacco products in the future.  TYTAP classes are only conducted by trained instructors (individuals) with an active State of Texas TYTAP license.  

The TYTAP program is an 8-hour course conducted during a two-week period, either in-person or virtual.  The courses are typically held 2 days per week for two consecutive weeks. Our program is approved by the State of Texas and meets the requirements as defined below.

MISSION 

To prevent and reduce the illegal and harmful use of tobacco and e-cigarette products in Brazoria County.

ABOUT
TOBACCO PREVENTION TASK FORCE

The Tobacco Prevention Task Force was formed in 2014 because the Galveston County Community Coalition recognized the need to address the public health impact and economic toll that tobacco use had on the community.  Applying for additional funding in 2017, BACODA was awarded a grant to continue the Tobacco Prevention Task Force in Brazoria County.

 

The Task Force takes a comprehensive approach to reducing the negative effects of nicotine use through implementation of strategies to prevent tobacco use, enforcement of existing laws, and support for people who want to quit smoking. The Task Force is made up of committed individuals representing law enforcement, education, health care and mental health services, nonprofits, other concerned citizens, and youth.

OBJECTIVES

Task Force Objectives:

 

  • Prevent tobacco use among youth​

  • Help those who want to quit

  • Reduce exposure to secondhand smoke

  • Promote enforcement of existing federal, state, and local tobacco laws

  • Reduce tobacco use among populations with the highest burden of tobacco-related health disparities

  • Support statewide capacity for comprehensive tobacco prevention and control

The TPTF serves the following communities:

Alvin, Angleton, Brazoria, Clute, Freeport, Lake Jackson, Liverpool, Manvel, Oyster Creek, Pearland, Richwood, Surfside, Sweeny and West Columbia.
