D.A.R.E. America/International congratulates the Military Brigade PROERD Training Center, of the State of Rio Grande do Sul (RS) for their success in achieving re-accredited status. On September 2019, two regional directors from D.A.R.E. America/International traveled to the City of Porto Alegre, RS to perform the assessment during a DOT that was being conducted at their training center. The RS training team and support staff demonstrated the highest professional standard in carrying out its responsibilities and full commitment to training excellence by adhering to the set of standards established for the preservation of the Educational Program for Resistance to Drugs and Violence (D.A.R.E. aka PROERD in Brazil).

A special mention to Lt Col Cilon, State Coordinator, Maj Karine, Training Coordinator and their team of mentors, Maj Juliano, Maj Bortolini, Sgt Jeferson, Sd Mayca, Sd Teresa, Sd Yuri, and educator, Sd Gilson for their professionalism and hard work during the assessment. Together with their support staff, they worked as a team to achieve the well-deserved success they proudly earned.

The RS Training Center is now accredited for a period of four years. Unfortunately, the postponement of the International Conference in Cancun, Mexico due to the COVID crisis, prevented an in-person presentation to their delegation at the conference. Instead, a virtual presentation via video conference was conducted on July 8, 2020 with all Brazilian training centers present as witnesses.

Once again, congratulations to the Military Brigade PROERD for a job well done!
