Teens Teaching Teens

Teens Teaching Teens
In its mission to teach students about the dangers of vaping, Hampton Bays High School has instituted a new Teens Teaching Teens program. 

The program, which is being conducted in partnership with the Suffolk County Department of Health Services, is designed to address the vaping epidemic by training students to conduct presentations to fellow students on the dangers of vaping.

On Dec. 12,  25 Hampton Bays High School students began training, working closely with two representatives from the department of health. They will continue to meet with them during the school year. Many of the program participants are also members of the school’s three-year-old Peer Education Program, which is co-advised by school psychologist Michelle DeBlasio and health teacher Jake Davidson.
