D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education)

The Mundelein Police Department teaches the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) program in local schools. D.A.R.E. is a drug abuse prevention program designed to equip elementary school children with basic life skills for resisting peer pressure to experiment with tobacco, drugs, and alcohol. Students are taught methods for handling stress, value judgments and risks, as well as respect for the law, personal safety, and how to recognize the glamorization of drugs and alcohol in the media. The core curriculum focuses on 5th grade students who are visited by a D.A.R.E. certified police officer once a week for 15 weeks. Each lesson is 45 to 60 minutes and involves the students in a variety of exercises. The program concludes with graduation ceremonies honoring those students for their successful completion of the D.A.R.E. program.

G.R.E.A.T. students discover for themselves the ramifications of gang and youth violence through structured exercises and interactive approaches to learning.
