SWAT (Students Working Against Tobacco) is made up of middle school and high school students from across the state of Florida who have decided to take a stand against an industry that kills more than 480,000 Americans and more than 8,000,000 people world wide every year.

The purpose of SWAT is to provide a means by which the young people of Florida may develop a coordinated, unified assault against the manipulation of Big Tobacco.

SWAT also provides young people with the chance to be advocates and to get involved within their state, regions and communities. SWAT allows youth to gain "real-life" experiences through planning, executing, and evaluating tobacco prevention activities.

SWAT will also attempt to provide meaningful workshops and training sessions that will allow youth to be more effective in any endeavor that they choose to undertake.
