Your questions answered
We know you have a burning curiosity about No Limits, and that’s okay! We’ve taken the time to answer the most common questions about who we are and what we do.
What’s No Limits all about?
No Limits is Nebraska’s first youth-led and youth-driven tobacco prevention movement. It’s all about youth empowerment and social change. By using activism, Nebraska teens are coming together to minimize the tobacco industry’s influence in Nebraska.
How’d No Limits get started?
A group of Nebraska teens known as Teen FYI came together in 2001 to talk about what could be done to stop the tobacco industry’s negative effects on the state of Nebraska. The group changed its name to No Limits after an online vote. Today, the No Limits Youth Board serves as the guiding body for the movement. The Youth Board sets goals, kicks off programs, plans activism events, and hosts training sessions to empower Nebraska’s teens.
What’s up with the No Limits name?
There are no limits to what the tobacco industry will do to market its deadly and addictive products to teens, and there are no limits to how far Nebraska teens will go to fight back. The No Limits name reflects the group’s culture and its unrelenting determination to take a stand against the tobacco industry.
How can I get in on this?
Getting involved is easy! You could start small by printing out some materials from our toolkit or using some activism ideas to get the word out at your school, church, or local clubs. If you’re looking for something a bit bigger, get some friends together and start a group that focuses on fighting Big Tobacco. Don’t forget, we’re here to help and answer any questions.

Who foots the bill for the No Limits program?
This youth movement is made possible by Tobacco Free Nebraska, a program of the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services. The funding comes in part from the Master Settlement Agreement, which ended a lawsuit filed by 46 states against the tobacco industry.
