Caitlyn was the D.A.R.E. America Youth Advocacy Board Member from Virginia. She said, “I first learned about D.A.R.E. when I was in 6th grade and we took the course in P.E. class. I then would help every summer at our local summer Sheriff Sports camps, which helped me develop a close relationship to the officers in my town. I have always had admiration to help others and I believe this program is a great way to not only meet new people, but also help educate them on the importance of D.A.R.E…..I am beyond excited to see the opportunities to come my way!”
