The DEA YDP Celebrates Five Years Of Inspiring Youth!

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

5th Year Anniversary Celebration at Payne!
5th Year Anniversary Celebration at Payne!

DEA Youth Dancers proudly performed for their schools and communities in 47 cities to close out the spring season. After 20-weeks of free dance classes, students grew in self-confidence, developed team-building skills, and learned the power of dance as a positive alternative to drugs and violence.  

The DEA Youth Dance Program is proud to partner with DEA in bringing important programs to communities, in particular with the 360 Strategy, a comprehensive approach bringing together local law enforcement, DOJ, DEA, and community partners to combat heroin and opioid drug addiction in select cities nationwide. As a community partner with DEA 360 Strategy, DEA YDP provided a year of free dance classes in 5 cities in 2016. In 2017, we will continue to serve students through the DEA 360 Strategy in Albuquerque, Charleston, Dayton, and Manchester. 

The DEA Educational Foundation Youth Dance Program proudly celebrates five years of inspiring youth, one step at a time! The program continues to spread the message of the dangers of drug abuse and the importance of healthy lifestyles through the art of dance. The celebrations kicked off with Payne Elementary, the first school to offer The DEA Youth Dance Program in 2012 to deserving at-risk and under-served youth. We will continue celebrating our 5th year anniversary around the country throughout this 2017 year!

We are so proud of the work our teachers have done with thousands of students over the past five years, and we are seeking support to assist us in continuing our reputable work in the community and to help us to reach our extensive waitlist. Together, let's continue to bring kids a healthy outlet through dance!
