X-HALE 2019

Calling All Youth Organisations!

We are now taking bookings for our free X-HALE 2019 Training for Youth Workers and Volunteers.

Applications for funding are now open for The X-HALE 2019 Short Film Competition.

Would your youth organisation, project, club, service or Youthreach centre be interested in tackling issues around young people and tobacco?

X-HALE is an Irish Cancer Society initiative that aims to prevent young people from smoking through educating and empowering young people, youth leaders and educators. Since 2011, we have supported over 270 youth organisations to take part in X-HALE. 

The European Commission awarded X-HALE as the 1st place winner of the EU Health Award for NGO's Working to Prevent Tobacco Use in 2018 for the programmes innovative social dimension and  the peer-to-peer approach to working with groups most at risk of tobacco use.

Check out our  documentary, X-HALE: A Tobacco Free Generation in the Making, to be inspired by all the fantastic work done to date and to hear what participants have to say about taking part in X-HALE. 

The 2019 training and funding opportunities are now open for applications and we want youth organisations across Ireland to get involved and drive the movement towards establishing Ireland’s first smoke free generation.
