About/History

Each day more than 3,500 children in the United States try their first cigarette. Another 1,000 become regular, daily smokers. About a third of all youth smokers will die prematurely from a disease caused by smoking. Tar Wars was founded to respond to this growing, yet preventable, health crisis. Since being established in 1988, Tar Wars has reached more than 8 million children with its tobacco-free message.

Tar Wars, a national tobacco-free educational program from the American Academy of Family Physicians, was developed in 1988 as a program that would allow healthcare providers and community organizations to become involved in youth tobacco edu¬cation. The program is designed to educate students prior to the age when the decision to smoke or chew tobacco is made.
