The DARE Game is a highly interactive card game which addresses the issues of:
- Drug and Alcohol use
- Internet Safety
- Road Safety
- Fire Safety
Revised and updated in January 2017 the Game enables and encourages discussion between young people and the facilitator and allows them to:
- Apply the DARE decision making model in a variety of situations
- Practice effective decision making
- Explore ways of keeping healthy and safe
- Understand the law as it relates to issues discussed
The Game has been developed for young people 12-15 years, though older age groups may find this resource useful too. It is appropriate for use in any situation/setting and the group facilitator is provided with a session plan including detailed game instructions, legislation sheet and a glossary of terms. There is also a video introduction to the Game available.
The Game consists of a ‘hand’ of cards consisting of a Profile, Setting and Scenario card (and in some cases Wild cards), together with the DARE Decision Making Model (DDMM) which enables the group to identify and explore issues before making decisions regarding different options in order to keep themselves and others safe.
