That is why we are especially happy to find new volunteers who share our commitment to doing good in the world. Do you want to support us by helping with our work? Then do not hesitate to contact us. A helping hand is always greatly appreciated!
Specially Trained Cops Assigned D.A.R.E. Classroom "Beats"
The D.A.R.E. curriculum is designed to be taught by police officers whose training and experience give them the background needed to answer the sophisticated questions often posed by young students about drugs and crime. Prior to entering the D.A.R.E program, officers undergo 80 hours of special training in areas such as child development, classroom management, teaching techniques, and communication skills; another 80 hours of additional training are provided to D.A.R.E. instructors to prepare them to teach the high school curriculum.
