Reality Check of NY


Reality Check (RC) is the youth action component of the New York State Bureau of Tobacco Control Program, established in 2001. Since then, youth ages 13-18 from all over New York have worked hard to educate their peers, parents, legislators, community members and key decision makers on the tobacco industry’s manipulative marketing practices and how they target youth to become replacement smokers.

We currently have Reality Check youth from schools in each of our three counties. Reach out to Trisha at if you know of a teen who would like to get involved!
