The D.A.R.E. Mission

“Teaching students good decision-making skills to help them lead safe
and healthy lives”

The D.A.R.E. Vision

“A world in which students everywhere are empowered to respect others
and choose to lead lives free from violence, substance abuse, and other dangerous behaviors.”

A Vital Mission… to Fulfill a Vision
Facing unparalleled drug abuse among our youth in the 1970’s and early
1980’s, visionary Los Angeles Police Chief Daryl Gates and the
Los Angeles Unified School District in 1983 launched an unprecedented
and innovative substance abuse prevention education program - Drug Abuse Resistance Education.

With each passing year, D.A.R.E.’s success was seen in classrooms and homes leading to rapid growth and expansion.  As each decade passed and success increased, the challenges facing children and families also grew.  Today, through the leadership of D.A.R.E.’s dedicated Board of Directors, and the tireless commitment and hard work of tens of thousands of officers and educators throughout America and around the globe, D.A.R.E strives each day to achieve its vital mission… to fulfill a vision.
