Our overall goal was to help spread awareness about the dangers of Juuling among the youth. Our teens are getting corrupted by nicotine addiction, which is prevalent all over high school communities in New York
I think that it is great you are trying to make a change and make teenagers more aware of the affects of juuling. I thought it was interesting when you talked about how you utilized social media platforms. I think that it is becoming more common to start movements via social media. I also think that it is amazing you got forty-five signatures!
Juuling in school has become more prevalent as the days pass. Kids pass their Juuls within their group to “hit it” from class to class. Teens are unaware of vaping’s consequences that could lead to mental and

This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
