D.A.R.E. Works Foothills Society
The D.A.R.E. Works Society was established in 1998 as a branch society of the De Winton Rural Crime Watch Association then, in the spring of 2004, the Society established itself as a registered society and registered charity in its own right under the name D.A.R.E. Works Foothills Society.
Since inception, the Society has worked in partnership with the RCMP detachments in Okotoks, High River and Turner Valley. The Society’s original goal was to ensure the D.A.R.E. Program would be delivered in every grade six classroom in the MD of Foothills. The Society struck an agreement with the RCMP to designate a full-time police officer to coordinate and deliver the program in exchange for funding of the position by the Society and eight stakeholders (Foothills School Division, the MD of Foothills, the municipalities of High River, Okotoks, Black Diamond, Turner Valley, Longview and the Strathcona Tweedsmuir School). The separate school division in the MD of Foothills chose not to participate in the program at that time.
In subsequent years, the Society expanded the D.A.R.E. program to include delivery of a follow-up and reinforcement program to grade eight students. The expansion entailed hiring and training a D.A.R.E. Officer to deliver the program part-time. Recently the Society further expanded its program to include a Parent Program, offering parents information on drug-related issues, as well as guidance on topics such as bullying and safe internet use. The Parent Program is currently run in two evening sessions at various times throughout the school year in High River, Okotoks, and Turner Valley. The Society’s next goal is to research, plan and find the resources for expanding the program into the high schools.
The DARE Works Foothills Society is always looking for Volunteers to sit on their Board. If you are interested please submit an application through the Prospective Board Members and Volunteers section of our website: http://www.darefoothills.ca/volunteer-opportunities.html
