DEA YDP Celebrates INTERNATIONAL YOUTH WEEK!

By Jill L. Roberts | Senior VP - DEA EF, National Director - DEA YDP

We are proud to be partnering with GlobalGiving for the United Nations International Youth Week 2017 (August 7th – August 11th), the theme of which is “Youth Building Peace.” Students participating in The DEA Youth Dance Program learn important skills of team-building, self-esteem development, and healthy lifestyle habits to create peace in their communities by resisting drugs and violence. 

Recognizing the national drug crisis and how it preys on the children of our country, we are using the occasion of the DEA YDP’s Fifth Year Anniversary to launch “Inspiring Youth, One Step at a Time,” a national initiative to strengthen DEA YDP’s impact to provide students with the healthy outlet of dance as a positive alternative to drug abuse and violence. Emerging trends in drug usage among young people are very frightening, and prescription drug abuse is now the fastest growing drug problem in America today. This initiative not only celebrates our commitment to healthy, drug-free children who learn and succeed in school and life, but it will allow us to strengthen our impact of providing environments for children during the afterschool hours when they are most at risk for unhealthy behavior and choices. Simply stated, never before has our need to educate young people on the dangers of drug abuse been greater because every child deserves a chance to succeed.

There is a critical, urgent need to provide positive after-school arts education programs for at-risk and underserved youth. Your contribution will help us to reach our goal of “Inspiring Youth One Step At A Time.”
