   HOW YVAPE WORKS   

YVAPE is available to California public schools with students 12 years and older that have students found with nicotine or marijuana at school. YVAPE is designed to provide a positive experience for the student and help them think through their substance use behavior.

See below for details on eligibility and how the student can complete YVAPE.

Step 2: Initial Call
Answer the call from your YVAPE coach (1-888-525-0122). You will talk to them for around 15-20 minutes about yourself and your substance use and set up a time for a follow-up call.

Step 3: Videos & Discussion
Pick 3 or more YVAPE videos to watch. We encourage you to watch with your parent or guardian and discuss the questions with them. You can find the videos and discussion questions by clicking on the link provided in your videos email from YVAPE or by going to www.yvape.org/videos.
  • Each video is around 2-4 minutes.
  • Video topics include marketing manipulation by the vaping industry, health effects of vaping, vaping marijuana, vaping marijuana: your brain & lungs, dealing with stress, understanding motivation, and personal responsibility.

Step 4: Follow-up Call
Answer the call from your YVAPE coach (1-888-525-0122). You will talk with your coach for around 10 minutes about the videos, your discussion with your parent or guardian, and your substance use. You can also ask any questions you may have.

Step 5: Follow-up Survey
Complete a short online follow-up survey by clicking on the link included in your follow-up survey email or text message from YVAPE. This should only take about 5 minutes.

Step 6: Completion
You will receive a certificate of completion in your program completion email from YVAPE and your school will be notified of your completion.
*While YVAPE is not a cessation program, students who want help quitting tobacco can be enrolled in Kick It California's tobacco cessation services here.
What are students saying?
Most students who completed YVAPE said that talking to the coaches was helpful and they learned something from the videos.
Our students have given us positive feedback re: your program. In some cases, students who have not been caught vaping have actually asked us if they could participate in the program because they have heard good things about it, and they are very aware that they need some help!
