Evolvement Training by Shakayla Crank

My name is Shakayla Crank, I am in 9th grade at Tucumcari High School. This is my first year in evolvement. I joined evolvement because smoking is ruining the world by poisoning people’s lungs and it kills people.  And now teens and young kids are starting at a young age. The Youth Field Organizer, Amanda came to my school and talked about Evolvement and how we can get involved. In her presentation, I was inspired because she made it seem possible to fix the broken world we live in.

The training was on October 6th of 2021. During the training, we saw a PowerPoint presentation on the dangers and risks of tobacco and the way that it affects the body. We did group work where you watch a video with your group and then answer simple questions on the video/videos. We talked about the two different campaigns Evolvement works with and how to complete the surveys and earn points. The points you earn go toward stuff in the store. There are things like AirPods, laptops, and more.

The first campaign is the 24/7 campaign to keep schools tobacco-free 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The next campaign is the No Minor Sale campaign that is working to keep stores to from selling tobacco-based products to minors and to educate the community about flavored products.

This experience helps you realize the dangers of tobacco in the world and how you can help stop tobacco use in schools and the community. Evolvement is a good organization that everyone should join. This organization makes it possible to help prevent smoking in schools and the community so we can have a somewhat positive environment. This is also so the next generations to come have a positive environment too.
