Attorney General Jeff Sessions at the 30th D.A.R.E. International Conference



“Give them their voice”

On July 11th – 13th 2017, our Youth Advocacy Board (YAB) members showed just what they are capable of achieving at our 30th Annual D.A.R.E. International Training Conference in Grapevine, TX.
15 YABs from varying national and international states gathered together on July 8th in preparation of the D.A.R.E. Conference. Each year, the conference boasts hundreds of D.A.R.E. Officers, Educators, and Public Officials with Frank Pegueros, D.A.R.E. America CEO as our Master of Ceremony. This year, as our theme suggest, we handed off the mic along to our YABs.

This year we also had a special guest speaker, Attorney General of the United States, Jeff Session, speak during our opening ceremony. Attorney General Jeff Session spoke highly of the D.A.R.E. program and the fight against substance abuse. He was then presented with an award from our YABs!
