Quickstart Guide: Fill Your Toolbox
Finding information, sorting through resources, developing plans, building membership, and rallying support takes work! Fortunately, we’ve done some of the heavy lifting for you. The South Dakota Tobacco Control Program (TCP) and our partners have created a number of resources to help you champion tobacco-free initiatives in your community. Use these tools for educating and empowering others to join the tobacco-free movement in South Dakota.
Find the mix of advocacy tools that work best for your needs
This self-guided course has been designed for staff, grantees, and advocates. Learn about the history of tobacco control, the impact of tobacco use, identify priority populations, and get ready to engage and mobilize your coalition or community with high-impact strategies!
Implementing a tobacco-free policy is a great way to reduce tobacco use and exposure to secondhand smoke and vape. Use these templates to develop a policy for your school, workplace, organization, park, or community.
Reinforce no smoking/vaping policies with free window clings and door hangers to let others know that smoking is not allowed on a facility’s premise, in a vehicle, or a home.
School-based programs to prevent tobacco use can make a major contribution to the health of the next generation. The K-12, Post-Secondary, and Tribal toolkits contain activities, ideas, and resources to entertain and educate.
Coalitions can influence public policy, change people’s behavior, and help build healthier communities. Learn how to recruit and retain members and create an action plan to help stay on track and achieve your goals.
