DARE Philippines was incorporated in 2015 as a civic organization advocating education to prevent drug abuse. The program trains DARE police officers who are given tasks outside their usual police work, to teach school children in the classroom.

PNP officers undergo a 10-day live-in training lessons on classroom management, teaching strategies, communication skills, adolescent development, drug information, and thorough instruction on DARE’s 17 lessons.

A police officer should pass the course to be a certified DARE officer qualified to teach students.

The training curriculum was designed for children in their last years of elementary school.
