How to build your legacy in 2016
A New Year brings excitement to make changes in your life, whether you want to save money for an exciting trip or work on losing some extra holiday pounds! The New Year is also an opportunity for you to build upon your legacy and make a difference in your community. Every day, D.A.R.E. BC Society supports the RCMP and dedicated D.A.R.E. Officers in delivering the D.A.R.E. keepin’ it REAL program. D.A.R.E. Officers deliver the program over 10 weeks to excited Grade 5/6 students who have the chance to learn how to make healthy choices from a leader in their community.
Although the program is facilitated by trained RCMP D.A.R.E. Officers, community members and leaders are still able to be involved and make an impact in the lives of students. Find out 3 ways you can start your New Year off right, and having 2016 be your most impactful year yet!
