D.A.R.E. America Youth Advocacy Board Alumnus from California

My name is Richard Smith and I am a junior from Tracy, California. I like to participate in speech and debate events and activities at my church. In my spare time I like to play guitar and saxophone. I volunteer at organizations in my community, like Brighter Christmas, Tracy Senior Association and Case for Kids. I enjoy speaking at my local D.A.R.E. graduations because I feel like I am able to make a positive impact in my community.

I also instituted an annual breakfast fundraiser in my town that benefits my local D.A.R.E. board. I have been appointed to serve on the Youth Advisory Commission to work with my city council. The Youth Advisory Commission plans and hosts events in the community that benefit the youth. I am honored to serve as the D.A.R.E. America Youth Advocacy Board California Representative.
