Project Report | Nov 24, 2023
Wrapping up 2023 with Dance and Drug Abuse Prevention!

By Jill Roberts | President and CEO, DEAEF

The DEA Educational Foundation Youth Dance Program has been active this fall reaching youth in dozens of cities across the United States. As we near the end of 2023, The DEA Educational Foundation reflects upon this past year of a significant educational reach in prevention through our community and youth programs, drug abuse and misuse seminars, health and wellness events, support of DEA’s traveling exhibit, Drugs: Costs and Consequences, and more. DEAEF programs continued to expand as a whole and reached nearly 80 cities in this past year with the DEAEF Youth Dance Program in 55 cities! The Foundation has worked tirelessly for over 22 years to help to make an impact for hundreds of thousands of youth and adults by building bridges of hope in our communities. We are thankful to our many friends and supporters for their unwavering support.

The DEA Educational Foundation continues to reach communities with the goal of saving a child’s life, one step at a time. However, despite this reach and the fact that we have led so many to a long-term healthy path, our nation continues to lose a devastating number of people to drug overdoses and poisoning. We know that without our important reach, the loss would be even greater. Therefore, we must work harder than ever. 

As we enter into 2024, we move forward with our mission of bringing youth and communities critical drug abuse prevention education, a safe place for self-expression, strong mentorship, and, most of all, hope. We strive to have more kids dancing all while embracing friendships, future goals and dreams! We aim to have more children hear our prevention messaging so that they never start down a destructive path; or a one-time tragedy. Today I invite you to join the DEA Educational Foundation by making a donation to help us to maintain our critical programming and to reach even more communities that on our waitlist seeking dance programs. I am deeply appreciative of your consideration to support the DEAEF, helping us to provide hope for all of those that we reach.
