The Ontario Lung Association (OLA) has a rich history of working with youth, developing expertise in youth engagement, and building networks with youth agencies and youth across the province. Helping people quit smoking is also an important priority for OLA. Currently the Not on Tobacco (N-O-T) program, a youth tobacco cessation program, uses a facilitator model to offer in-person group sessions for youth who want to quit. The program is one of the only programs for high school-aged youth with a well-evidenced and long history of providing youth with the resources and support needed to quit smoking. There is currently no program like N-O-T available online for youth.
Reporting to the Senior Director, Programs and Services, the Program Manager. Youth Engagement & Knowledge Translation, will support the adaptation and transition of the in-person model of the N-O-T program to an online and mobile youth cessation program. This role will oversee the development and launch of the digital program with a provincial scope, with the intent to utilize the evaluation outcomes to inform the expansion of the program nationally.
In addition to the work on the N-O-T project, the Program Manager will assist with building knowledge translation information and resources for healthcare providers as it pertains to the public education campaign around cannabis use. This campaign is aimed at young adults aged 18 to 25 and will inform them about the potential risks of smoking cannabis, as well as harm reduction tips.
