What is TUPE?
We are the Tobacco Use Prevention Education Pogram. Our goals are to educate students and families about the dangers of tobacco use and to make healthy choices regarding other drug and alcohol use. We provide this education mainly through our Peer Educators who are students on the Heritage campus who attend trainings and host events relating to anti-tobacco, drug and alchohol education.
