Flor also provides bilingual prevention programs throughout the county and runs a lunch group at Hunterdon Central with ELL students. Partnering with the Latino Access Coalition (LAC) and Harvest Family Success Center (HFSC), Positive YOUth assists in closing the gap for many of Hunterdon County’s Latino families.
Vaping is rampant in Hunterdon County High Schools.
In collaboration with the principal at North Hunterdon High School, the Take Back Your Vape Initiative was created. For one week leading up to Take Back Your Vape Day, students were sent snippets of information about the dangers of vaping, health risks, and the manipulation of the tobacco companies. Students were incentivized to turn in their devices/pods by receiving a gift card ranging from $5-$20 to McDonald’s and Dunkin. Students also received raffle tickets based on how many vape products they turned in to be entered into a drawing for a pair of Apple AirPods. Resources were also given to students to help quit at the time of surrender. Students were able to turn in devices anonymously, without questions or consequences, and without school personnel present.
Take Back Your Vape Day brought in 59 vape devices, 15 vape juices, 4 chargers, and 82 pods.
Anyone in the community can turn vape devices into our office Mondays-Thursdays from 12-4 pm.
