has changed about the experience of going to school for the average
youngster. Children from single parent families are no longer the
exception and an increasing percentage of middle school aged children
are “latch-key” kids who go home to an empty house with
a television set as their babysitter.
The D.A.R.E.+ P.L.U.S. program is an answer to questions of what
children are to do after they are taught how to resist drugs and
violence life skills in the DARE program. The extended acronym which
stands for "Play and Learn Under Supervision," truly expresses the
extended goal that D.A.R.E. America is achieving.
D.A.R.E.+ P.L.U.S. programs are currently running in several areas
of the United States. Campus programs in Chicago, Los Angeles, and
Houston are each positively impacting thousands of kids.
In any of these positive and necessary P.L.U.S. programs throughout
the country, students cannot receive guidance if there are not enough
volunteers to teach and guide.
