Description

boys who d.a.r.e., Inc.

is a reading program that offers the male child a full and equal literary opportunity, regardless of background, education and income of parents. Research consistently shows that children who get off to a good start in reading rarely stumble. Those who fall behind tend to stay behind for the rest of their academic lives.

A group of concerned parents, community leaders, local businesses and writers have partnered with boys who d.a.r.e. to provide monthly literary events. Each month, young boys are introduced to a new book by a different adult male role model. Documented research shows that while women play a significant role in helping to empower young males, it is only a man who can model the attitudes and behaviors of successful manhood.
