About this event

CATCH My Breath is delivered in four 45-minute sessions. In fall 2021, CATCH My Breath will be offered VIRTUALLY to youth in 5th - 8th grades. Sessions will be held via Zoom 5:45-6:30 PM on Wednesdays 10/27 and 11/3, 10 & 17/21.

Elementary school students (5th - 8th graders) are invited to participate in a FREE, exciting CATCH My Breath Training program!  Join us and make new friends, while learning healthy habits and building skills that will help you prepare for the world of high school and beyond. 

Program topics include: resisting their own curiosity, peer and advertising pressure to experiment with e-cigarettes; understanding that e-cigarettes are addictive, unhealthy, and not as popular as they think; and influencing friends and peers not to use e-cigarettes.

Learn more about the CATCH My Breath program at CATCH Global Foundation website (http://catchinfo.org/). Register for the program here using the green button to the right.

Students who participate in at least three of four sessions will earn a gift card, awarded following the last session on November 3rd. Each participant will need reliable web access, a web cam and good mic. Students will be expected to be on camera for the duration of all sessions.

The course is limited to 11 participants. Regular attendance is expected!

Formed Families Forward is able to offer this program for no fee to families with the support of Fairfax County Neighborhood and Community Services’ Partners in Prevention Fund. It is open to youth grades 5 to 8.

Program flyer available HERE.
