The involvement of the undercover agents (Youth Decoys) greatly reduces tobacco sales to minors. Teens who participate in the Youth Decoy Program are also able to earn money, strengthen their college applications, and work resumes, as well as work to stop the injustice of underage tobacco sales. The $100 in gift cards is basically a sign up bonus. If you enroll in the program, you will get at least $25 in visa gift cards. When you work, you will receive $5 per store you visit.  For more details: www.decoyca.org
