The Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) program is a 10 week program offered to approximately 600 Grade 6 students in Grande Prairie each year as part of their school's health curriculum.  It provides a valuable learning resource, including topics such as the consequences of using drugs and alcohol, ways to resist peer pressure, and how to deal with violence.  The goal of DARE is to significantly reduce and eliminate the use of alcohol, tobacco, other drugs, and violent behaviour by young people. 

Grande Prairie DARE instructors are RCMP members who each commit a minimum of 10 hours towards the program.  This does not include travel or preparation time and can frequently occur on their days off.

The DARE program is not funded by the RCMP, rather, it is supported by fundraising activities and community donations.  These funds will be used to purchase lesson and graduation supplies for each student.  If you are interested in making a donation to the program, please call (780)830-5719.
