Iowa Students for Tobacco Education and Prevention
ISTEP is Youth-Led (and adult supported)
ISTEP is a student-led organization; meaning youth creatively formulate the ideas, learn a 5 step planning process and follow through with the implementation of their planning. The messages and content of an ISTEP chapter need to come from the students. This doesn’t mean that the sponsor or the administrator can’t give suggestions or veto activities but the youth should be coming up with the activities or ideas that the chapter does. It should be youth planned and led, while adult supported.
