We connect tobacco prevention and quit partners with schools and community organizations throughout central Vermont. We are your local connection to the statewide 802Quits program
and other resources. If you have questions about smoke-free housing, tobacco-related town zoning and policies
or how to make your business or medical campus smoke-free, contact us and we can help you reach your goals.
The Central Vermont New Directions Coalition (CVNDC
) strives to educate and engage youth and other community members to reduce the availability of tobacco , increase content-neutral advertising
and decrease exposure to secondhand smoke. Along with many other successes, CVNDC has:
- Collaborated with the City of Montpelier to make its parks smoke-free.
- Worked with many entities to make Wrightsville Beach smoke-free.
- Joined forces with Montpelier Alive and the Montpelier Trash Tramps to support the installation of cigarette “buttlers” to clean up downtown Montpelier.

Local classes for quitting tobacco are held at Central Vermont Medical Center. Classes are free with new classes starting every month. For more information, contact: Lisa Champagne, Self-Management Program Coordinator at 802-225-5680 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
