  This year 36 million school children around the world -26 million of whom are in the U.S. - will benefit from D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education).
  The highly acclaimed program gives children the skills they need to avoid involvement in drugs, gangs, or violence. D.A.R.E. was founded in 1983 in Los Angeles and has proven so successful that it is now being implemented in 80 percent of our nation's school districts and in 54 countries around the world.

D.A.R.E. is a police officer-led series of classroom lessons that teach children from kindergarten through 12th grade how to resist peer pressure and live productive drug and violence-free lives. The program initially focused on elementary school children. It has now been expanded to include middle school and high school students.*
