Advocating for a Tobacco-Free California

The California Youth Advocacy Network (CYAN) changes the tobacco use culture in California’s high schools, colleges and universities, military installations, and other youth and young adult communities by providing knowledge, skills, and tools to create local change for healthier communities.

CYAN College Program

Since 1998, the CYAN College Program has been partnering with college students, faculty, staff, and tobacco control professionals to transform tobacco-related norms on college campuses.  Through training, education, and support, the College Program has been and continues to be successful in eliminating tobacco and tobacco industry presence in college communities.  The College Program is also responsible for coordinating the COUGH (Campuses Organized and United for Good Health) Coalition, a statewide movement working to promote tobacco-free college campuses throughout California.
