Young Lungs at Play

YLAP sign

Pennsylvania communities are creating tobacco free outdoor spaces for children to play! 

Because their bodies are still growing, infants and young children are especially vulnerable to health risks from secondhand smoke. Young Lungs at Play is a program that offers municipalities tools to create outdoor tobacco-free policies at parks, athletic fields, playgrounds, and trails to help protect both children and the environment. 

View the Young Lungs at Play Honor Roll to see a list of participants.
