- What We Do
About the Action Summits
The Texas School Safety Center (TxSSC) will conduct seven Say What! Texas Tobacco-Free Action Summits during the spring of 2015 to empower school- and community-based organizations to invest in youth.
Each Say What! Summit will utilize service learning to train Middle School and High School students in effective tobacco prevention activities aimed at reducing the harmful effects of tobacco use in Texas. After receiving training in the morning, all student and adult participants will take part in a local Community Action Event and help make a difference that same day!
Funding for Say What! Texas Tobacco-Free Summits comes from the Texas Department of State Health Services and allows TxSSC to offer these elite training services FREE OF CHARGE. We cover registration fees, training materials, and meals. And all you have to do is GET THERE!!!
What to Expect!
The Say What! movement was developed by youth and continues to be a youth-led movement.
Say What! Summits are led by the Say What! Teen Ambassadors, who lead interactive activities and discussions that include individual leadership development, small group team building, and commitment to a larger cause.
Informational sessions are based on the latest research released by national partners in tobacco control and prevention. To ensure that the information is relevant to youth and easy to understand, these sessions are developed in part and delivered by the Say What! Teen Ambassadors.
