What is Tobacco-Free Youth Recreation?

Tobacco-Free Youth Recreation (TFYR) is a program of the Association for Nonsmokers-Minnesota (ANSR). TFYR's mission is to assist recreational organizations and communities in their efforts to create a tobacco-free environment where they can promote and model tobacco-free lifestyles.  This is accomplished by helping these groups partner with youth and adult community members to implement and promote tobacco-free policies for their park and recreation facilities. 

FREE Tobacco- and Electronic Cigarette-Free Signs for Grounds!

Tobacco-Free Youth Recreation (TFYR) has 12” x 18” permanent metal signs available for Minnesota communities that need assistance in promoting their tobacco-free policy on outdoor grounds, including municipal grounds, school grounds, campus grounds or worksite grounds.

These signs are FREE, but all orders must be sent to and approved directly by TFYR and require a copy of the written tobacco-free policy. To receive the FREE signs, the tobacco-free policy must be a formal written policy that states that all forms of tobacco use are prohibited on the whole property or lists the facilities covered under the policy. 

When determining the number of signs to order, consider these locations on the property:

  • Places where tobacco users tend to congregate

  • Entrances to buildings

  • Perimeters of the property

A limited number of signs are available, so please limit your order based on the number of signs you need for immediate use.
