TURF_logoThe Youth Leadership Institute’s TURF is a group of youth from SF who have been working for a number of years on making community level change to improve the health of San Franciscans, specifically around tobacco.
  • Tobacco costs the city over $500 million in disease-related costs and our city is facing a problem with over concentration!
  • Certain neighborhoods, especially the low-income communities and communities with people of color, are especially burdened by tobacco-related influences.
  • TURF has been working on a policy campaign to change this.
 If you know any youth who may be interested in this program, please feel free to share the attached flyer and/or direct them to the application by going to http://tinyurl.com/TURF2014.
Applications are due by August 15th.
