[ARCHIVED] Town Youth Bureau Launches Informational/Educational Vaping Website

Get the facts on vaping

The Town of Southampton Youth Bureau, in conjunction with the Town of the Southampton Youth Board, launched a new website that helps young people and parents understand the risks of vaping, including current information and resources to help quit.  In an effort to reach teens, the Town is also pushing the message out through social media.  

 As we struggle through the COVID-19 pandemic, the alarming uptake in vaping continues to present significant risk to our youth, making it critical to get the word out. In a new study out of Stanford, it was found that teens who vape are 5-7 more times more likely to contract COVID-19.  

 “We needed to find a way to get kids the information so they would understand the risks, and hopefully, prevent them from starting vaping.  Or if they’re already vaping, help them to quit,” said Councilwoman Julie Lofstad, liaison to the Youth Bureau.  “I’m hopeful that through the website and social media, we’ll be able to get the information out there to those who need it most, the kids and their parents.” 

The Youth Bureau recently reached out to the schools in the area to encourage them to post and tag the Southampton Youth Bureau on Instagram @southamptonyb and Facebook (Southampton Youth Bureau) with information and resources about vaping and other important information for the youth in our community.
