D.A.R.E Program

 

 

 

Drug Awareness Resistance Education, The Burbank D.A.R.E. Program aspires to prevent drug misuse by young people but recognizes that this cannot be done with just classroom-taught and sports-based preventative education alone. 

 

Our mission, is therefore, more simple: it is to provide young people with the skills and knowledge to make their own informed choices about drugs, alcohol and tobacco instead of succumbing to peer pressure. In addition, it also teaches them how to lead healthy lives and give them coping skills to avoid violent behavior.

Our objectives are:

  1. To teach young people the skills to deal successfully with peer pressure by developing and building their self-confidence;
     

  2. To educate young people with accurate facts about drugs, including tobacco and alcohol;
     

  3. To build trust and understanding between the Police and young people so that they will come to see the Police as someone who will help and support them;
     

  4. To promote the Police, parents and teachers as positive role models;
     

  5. To unite communities, including children, parents, teachers, and the community at large in the fight against drug abuse;
     

  6. To ensure that D.A.R.E. lessons are a valuable, enjoyable and effective learning experience, employing the best classroom practice;
     

  7. To engage young people in healthy activity and provide information on healthy living;
     

  8. To offer young people the opportunity to engage in activity outside of the classroom activity that will reinforce our key messages previously taught in the classroom;
     

  9. To offer parents the opportunity to learn about the pressures and pitfalls and telltale signs of drugs and drug abusers;

What does D.A.R.E do?

 Provides drug education and prevention activities to help children to understand the dangers of the misuse of drugs;  teaches about the harmful effects of drugs, providing information that is appropriate to the age group to which it is delivered; develops the life skills to resist peer pressure and personal pressure, and to avoid the misuse of drugs. Prevention is better than intervention.
 

DARE educates primary and secondary school children, with the hope of preventing many of them from misusing drugs and alcohol.
