Teens – An opportunity to join Teen Advisory Group with Interior Health

Teens & School Community of the Interior Health region,
The Interior Health Tobacco & Vapour Reduction team is developing a Teen Advisory Group to secure a teen perspective on tobacco and vaping.  A teen advisory group will provide teen voices and ‘lived experience’ to Interior Health’s Tobacco & Vapour Reduction initiatives.  The value of having access to teenagers lived experience is fundamental in targeting teen commercial tobacco & vapour use. By understanding teen tobacco and vapour perspectives, Reduction Coordinators can tailor teen specific prevention and cessation treatment initiatives based on the Teen Advisory Council’s recommendations and feedback. Each Teen Advisory member will be compensated with an honorarium of $25.00/hr for their participation.
We are looking for TEENS who:
              •            Are between the ages of 13-19 years of age
              •            Are smokers/vapers or non-smokers/non-vapers (being a smoker is not a prerequisite)
              •            Live anywhere in the Interior Health region
              •            Have access to a device, email address and a stable internet connection to attend meetings via Zoom

End of Semester 1 (January 2023) Schedule

Please take a few moments to review the assessment schedule for the end of January. We felt that it was important to share this with families now so that they can prepare for the last week of January and first week of February.

As you can see, January 27th, 2023 is a course completion day. The intent of this day is for students to come to the school to catch up on missing work, assignments and projects. This will be valuable time for those students in jeopardy of not passing their Semester 1 classes. There are no scheduled classes this day.

Monday, January 30th is a Pro-D day (students do not attend) and Tuesday, January 31st is a semester turn around day (students to do not attend).

Semester 2 classes will start on Wednesday, February 1st.
