Breathe NH to Provide Free Training to The Granite YMCA Staff

Posted 03/08/2019

Manchester, NH  (March 8, 2019) – The  Granite YMCA in collaboration with Breathe New Hampshire will hold an interactive training program for YMCA staff members who work with youth to raise awareness about the risks involved with e-cigarette and vape use.

Vaping is the act of inhaling vapor produced by a vaporizer or electronic cigarette. The vapor is produced from a material such as a liquid or concentrate that typically contains highly addictive nicotine. Many vaping devices are hidden in plain sight and can look like everyday products such as pens, flash drives, chargers and even asthma inhalers. “Many of our staff at The Granite YMCA work directly with youth between the ages of 11 – 18.” said Natalie Barney, Teen Services Director. “This training will give staff the necessary tools to educate youth that we serve in our communities and equip them with the knowledge to make educated decisions.”

Presented by Breathe NH, a nonprofit lung health organization, Vaping Unveiled™ is offered for free, thanks to support from CVS Health. The goal is to educate youth, parents, schools, and the community about the dangers of youth nicotine addiction through vaping e-cigarettes, “Juuls,” and other devices.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the FDA called youth vaping “an epidemic.” 

“The Granite YMCA has been on the forefront of addressing community needs for more than 165 years,” said Michele Sheppard, COO of The Granite YMCA. “Vaping among youth has increased dramatically. The Y, in partnership with Breathe New Hampshire, is in the unique position to support and empower families and youth to make healthy choices.”

According to the FDA, vaping among youth increased 78% among high school students between 2017 and 2018.  New Hampshire’s 2017 Youth Risk Behavior Survey revealed that one-quarter of students had used e-cigarettes once in the previous month.

“We are pleased to partner with The Granite YMCA to help prevent youth nicotine addiction,” said Allyssa Thompson, Director of Programs for Breathe NH. “As a lung health organization, our concern is the potential harm to still-developing lungs, and brains, since nicotine affects growing brains differently.”

As a charitable organization, the Y is focused on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Supporting families and the community in their efforts to raise healthy, confident, connected children is a core value of the Y’s mission.


About Breathe New Hampshire
For more than 100 years, Breathe New Hampshire has been an integral part of the public health landscape in the Granite State. A 501(c)3 non-profit organization, Breathe NH focuses on critical issues related to lung health, such as tobacco use and youth nicotine addiction, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), asthma, air quality, and lung cancer. We provide educational programs, advocate for public health, and support scientific research to prevent, eliminate, and treat lung disease. See www.BreatheNH.org.  

About The Granite YMCA

Across the state, its six branches engage 30,000 men, women and children – regardless of age, income or background – to improve their health and well-being, and provide opportunities to give back and support neighbors. In 2017, The Granite YMCA provided financial assistance and free services valued at over $1.63 million to 20,190 individuals. To learn more, please visit www.graniteymca.org.
