Youth Advocacy Board
The Youth Advocacy Board (YAB), initiated by D.A.R.E. America in 2000 is composed of 50 members–one student per State in the United States. Students are selected through a state-wide search.
The YAB gives D.A.R.E. graduates an opportunity to speak to issues impacting the national and worldwide D.A.R.E. program and to advise D.A.R.E. America and local D.A.R.E. programs, government and community leaders on drug and violence prevention strategies beneficial to our youth.
Members of the YAB are eligible for the D.A.R.E. America Scholarship upon their graduation from high school.
