The Youth Advisory Board (YAB), initiated by D.A.R.E. America in 2000 is composed of 50 members--one student per State in the United States. Students are selected through a state-wide search.
The YAB gives D.A.R.E. graduates an opportunity to speak to issues impacting the national and worldwide D.A.R.E. program and to advise D.A.R.E. America and local D.A.R.E. programs, government and community leaders on drug and violence prevention strategies beneficial to our youth.
YAB Mission Statement
We serve to provide youthful input and insight to D.A.R.E. America as it strives to enhance the D.A.R.E. program for the young people of the world. We do this as a body representing all drug and violence free youth from the fifty states of the Union.
We will work independently, and as a united body, to help others resist the pressure to become involved in drugs and violence. We will always remain true to our pledge to be positive role models through our personal commitment to a drug and violence free life.
We will be committed leaders within our states and communities as we interact with others to promote awareness of, participation in, and involvement with the D.A.R.E. Program. We will always remember that we represent millions of young people from across the country who also strive to remain drug and violence free, and we will always speak out to champion the values that D.A.R.E. America represents.
