D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) is the world’s leading prevention program. The new curricula known as “keepin’ it REAL” is both research based and effective. New D.A.R.E. Officers receive an 80 hour training course conducted by highly skilled mentors with many years of experience in the classroom, as well as university-level educators. All officers are taught to deliver the curricula exactly as they are written, thereby achieving the goal of nearly 100% implementation fidelity.
