D.A.R.E.'s primary mission is
to provide children with the information and skills they need to live
drug-and-violence-free lives. The mission is to equip kids with the
tools that will enable them to avoid negative influences and instead,
allow them to focus on their strengths and potential. And, that's
exactly what D.A.R.E. is designed to do.
Additionally, it establishes positive relationships between students and law enforcement, teachers, parents, and other community leaders. Every youngster should have the opportunity to grow-up healthy, safe, secure, and equipped with the skills needed to succeed in life.
Contemporary America, however, is rampant with challenges that could keep children from a positive life path.
In York County we deliver our instruction of the D.A.R.E. curriculum to
all 4th and 7th graders. We also provide presentations in a variety of
subjects for the community.
