Open to DARE certified officers

Registration is required. No charge for training.

    At the DARE International Summer Conference, DA rolled out three new programs for high school students, REAL Messages, myPlaybook and Celebrate Safely.

    In REAL Messages, a hybrid course, students learn about how social media and advertising targets teen's decision-making and consumer decisions. Students learn about specific advertising techniques and then apply those techniques to create their own "counter ad" that supports healthy, safe and responsible decision-making.myPlaybook, also a hybrid course, promotes safe and responsible decision-making and reinforces the skills and concept learned in the elementary and middle school kiR programs. Students complete online modules on teen perceptions of drug use, effects of alcohol, tobacco and marijuana on the brain and body, consequences and risks, responding under pressure and opting out strategies, goal setting and help networks. Students are required to complete a knowledge check (quiz) before the final lesson with DO.

    Celebrate Safely is a stand alone lesson designed for DO to present to teens before social events such as Prom or Homecoming. At this training, DO will receive access to lesson plan, power point and video. There is no charge for Celebrate Safely but this training is required.
