The program will have three distinct components:

1. Tobacco Cessation/Prevention Outreach – Work with community partners to offer information & resources.

2. Tobacco Cessation/Prevention Educational Activity – Deliver the Pathways to Freedom tobacco education workshop to community members and Urban League supporters.

3. Tobacco Cessation Counseling – Recruit and engage African American smokers in Courage to Quit an evidence-based, tobacco cessation program.
