  • Advocacy program giving Illinois youths real-life civics lessons

    Several Illinois communities adopted ordinances that made their parks smoke-free based upon presentations by youths involved in a statewide anti-tobacco campaign called Reality Illinois. The campaign uses a curriculum called Engaging Youth for Positive Change, developed by University of Illinois research scientist Scott Hays. Hays works for the Center for Prevention Research and Development, a unit within the School of Social Work.
