In an effort to thwart vaping, Hampton Bays High School collaborated with the Suffolk County Department of Health Services to host a Vape Out program.

As part of the program, presenters from the health department spoke to students about the significant impact vaping can have on the teenage body. In addition, the school’s peer educators hung posters, delivered daily announcements on the dangers of vaping and created a presentation that they made to their peers during health classes.

The school’s peer educators are trained to create and conduct presentations to high school, middle school and elementary school students on important topics such as bullying, being an upstander rather than a bystander, making good choices and other character education topics. They were recently trained by John Martin from the Suffolk County Department of Health Services on the dangers of vaping and worked with him to design the anti-vaping presentation that they shared with their peers. It included ice breaker games and other fun activities to increase student engagement.
