What We Do
PROVEN CURRICULUM. PROVEN RESULTS. PROVEN IMPACT.
For over 20 years, DAREarts’ education program has been empowering leaders. See the impact through the voices of our kids (view the storybook), their parents, and our school board partners.
“We need DAREarts to bring our kids back to hope, to action, to self-advocacy."- School Principal
The DAREarts program offers unique arts & culture educational opportunities to over 10,000 young people annually who would not otherwise have such opportunities.
An ideal DAREarts candidate is at risk of not reaching his or her potential. If you have a child who fits this criteria of being "at risk" and needs experiences that promote leadership skills outside of the classroom, contact us.

The power of leadership does not end at graduation. Next Steps is a program that engages our grads in the ongoing development of their leadership skills, building their confidence through day-to-day life skills training and mentorship training. Program areas include volunteering in our classrooms and at showcases, and building on the DARE values as the framework to make decisions as they move forward in life.
