Project Report | Feb 27, 2017
The DEA YDP Continues to Inspire Communities

By Jill L. Roberts | Senior Vice President, DEA Educational Foundation

DEA YDP at 360 Strategy Launch
DEA YDP at 360 Strategy Launch

The DEA Educational Foundation Youth Dance Program proudly launched programming in 44 cities across the country this past fall and winter, providing high-quality, positive after-school programming to thousands of students nationwide! Students are about mid-way through their 20-session series learning hip-hop, modern, ballet, tap, jazz, and more with local, professional teaching artists.

Also in 2016, The DEA Educational Foundation Youth Dance Program was honored to be asked to be a partner of the DEA 360 Strategy in eight cities throughout the United States. The 360 Strategy is a holistic approach to combating the heroin and pharmaceutical opioid epidemic, as well as accompanying violence.  The strategy leverages existing federal, state and local partnerships on three different fronts:  law enforcement, diversion control and community outreach. The DEA Youth Dance Program is a proud partner, bringing positive and healthy after-school programs to at-risk children. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and The Youth Dance Program is working to raise funds to be able to continue offering dance education in each of the initial eight cities. With these regions, we have also added incredible new dance company partners, who have received comprehensive training through our Training Director and are now spreading important messages about dance and anti-drug, anti-violence education to very deserving youth.

Stay tuned for more exciting news from The DEA Educational Foundation Youth Dance Program as we approach our Five Year Anniversary this May, 2017!
