Youth tobacco use is a large concern for healthcare professionals, educators, researchers, parents and caregivers, and others concerned about the health and well-being of our young people.

The mission of the Virginia Tobacco Settlement Foundation is to lead a statewide effort to reduce and prevent the use of tobacco products by youth in Virginia.

The Foundation’s mission is an important one, especially considering these startling facts:

  • More than 80% of adult smokers started smoking before the age of 18.
  • One of every three children who try smoking a cigarette become regular smokers before leaving high school.
  • More than 45 Virginia kids begin smoking each day, for a total of 16,500 per year.
  • 134,000 Virginia kids alive today will die early from smoking.
