Students Working Against Tobacco

SWAT is all about promoting smoke free lifestyles in the Sunshine State. Being in SWAT gives you the chance to make a difference in your community, while also being part of a statewide movement. SWAT is by youth and for youth to create a smoke free Florida through activism.


SWAT members fight for these goals by leading projects. As a member, you decide how to fight and how to use activism to cause social change in a fun and cool way.

The coolest part is, SWAT gives you real world experience: community service hours, college app building opportunities and hands on experience in leadership, activism, and promotions.



Clay County SWAT Chapter and SWAT Clubs

Welcome Back!  As the 2019-2020 school years begins, we are very excited about the Big Plans our Clay County Students Working Against Tobacco Chapter has in the works. With the current e-cigarette epidemic with youth, it is imperative now more than ever that students use this platform to inform, support, and fight back for their generation’s health. This year there are 10 amazing SWAT clubs located across Clay County.  Their main goal is to educate and spread awareness about the dangers of tobacco use and nicotine addiction.

Each club will host activities to promote, “Not a Lab Rat Day (October 16th), Red Ribbon Week (October 24-31), Great American Smoke out (November 21), Through with Chew Week (February 16-21), and World No Tobacco Day (May 31).  These opportunities allow each Students Working Against Tobacco Club to engage their peers and school personnel with emerging tobacco trends, while also educating them on the dangers of tobacco use. 

Clay County SWAT clubs participated in the Middleburg Christmas Parade with a Gingerbread theme "Can't Catch Me, I'm Smoke Free"! (December 14, 2019)
