D.A.R.E. International

With the tremendous success and rapid growth of the D.A.R.E. program in the United States in the 1980’s, other countries facing significant drug abuse problems among their youth approached D.A.R.E. for guidance and assistance.  Beginning at first with orientations and then slowly advising schools and law enforcement agencies in countries that included Canada, the United Kingdom, and several South American and Central American countries, D.A.R.E. has continued to be the “go to” organization that is repeatedly called upon to fill the void, and help country after country develop its own D.A.R.E. program.

By the end of 2010, more than 9,000 international law enforcement officers had been trained in 9 D.A.R.E. training centers throughout the world and are now teaching the D.A.R.E. curriculum in 13 languages to hundreds of thousands of school children in 44 different countries.

D.A.R.E. International family members:

Providing support to D.A.R.E. programs throughout the world is of the highest priority to D.A.R.E. International. With this as a goal, D.A.R.E. International is changing the point of contact for communication. The change in procedure is intended to improve the process by which assistance will be provided for D.A.R.E. program implementations around the world.

Effective November 1, 2015, please address communication and inquiries regarding D.A.R.E. implementation outside of the United States directly to me.

I look forward to working with you to support, enhance and expand substance abuse and high risk behavior prevention efforts for the youth of your nation. Please feel free to contact me regarding this correspondence or for any matter for which I may of assistance,

Respectfully,

Francisco X. Pegueros
