What our users think of the program
“AVOID is solving a big problem right now through the vaping epidemic. Everything is step by step. It tells us exactly what to do, when to do it, and how to do it; and it’s very easy and user-friendly, and it has a lot of interaction with the youth so it seems to flow very nicely.”
Vicky Solomon, Executive Director, NCDP
“I think the best part of AVOID has definitely been the interaction. It was very interactive. The youth really played a big part in educating themselves as well through the activities.”
Phyllis Schneider, SAFIR Coalition Coordinator
