2019 Action Summits

The Texas School Safety Center hosts Say What! Texas Tobacco-Free Action Summits during the spring of each year to empower school and community-based organizations to invest in youth.


Each Say What! Summit utilizes 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 take part in a local Community Action Event and help make a difference that same day! And as a bonus, every participant receives three hours of community service!


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!!!
