Middle Schools in Middletown to receive Anti Vaping Lessons

Thorne Middle School Middletown NJ

The Middletown High School North and South Bottlecappers are high school students who are trained to deliver substance abuse prevention lessons to elementary and middle school students in the district.

On February 7, the Bottlecappers will deliver a new lesson to all district middle schools grade levels on vaping prevention. This past September, the FDA determined teenage vaping to be an epidemic among this age group. In response to this growing problem, the Bottlecappers will deliver this lesson developed specifically to inform middle school students of the dangers of vaping and how to refuse offers to vape.

The Bottlecappers Program has been delivering prevention education to their younger peers for decades as one of the first Peer to Peer Substance Abuse Education Programs in the state of NJ.
