Bonneville County Sheriff's Office provides the D.A.R.E. program to Bonneville School District 93, Swan Valley School District 92, and White Pine Charter School. This year the school districts and the Sheriff graduated nearly 700 fifth and six grader students with a pledge to be drug free.
Our D.A.R.E. program takes advantage of the most current Drug Abuse Resistance Education techniques. D.A.R.E. graduates are armed with a factual knowledge of the harmful effects of tobacco, alcohol, marijuana, and inhalants. Students learn various ways to say no to drugs. Students gain an understanding of peer pressure and the importance of choosing friends who make good decisions and are drug free.
No drug use techniques are discussed, nor do the students see any drugs during the lessons. D.A.R.E. deputies are very careful to speak honestly about drug abuse with out doing any thing that would create curiosity that may lead to student experimentation.
A healthy drug free life style is taught and encouraged. Our summer program and activities model a fun drug free life style as taught in D.A.R.E. Students who finish the summer bike/walk challenge demonstrate successful goal setting. Our bike/walk challenge increase self esteem and rewards students with a feeling real accomplishment, not to mention ice cream party and a trophy. Our D.A.R.E graduates also participate in D.A.R.E. swim days at the Aquatic Center located in the City of Idaho Falls.
The Bonneville County, Idaho Falls D.A.R.E. Board is always looking for motivated volunteers who want to improve our D.A.R.E. program and make a difference in their community.
The D.A.R.E program does work!
