The DARE Foundation of New Zealand

At the DARE Foundation our aim is to give every New Zealander the life skills they need to reach their full potential.

Life Skills are defined by the World Health Organisation as “abilities for adaptive and positive behaviour that enable individuals to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life”.

The DARE Foundation offers a range of life skills programmes that allow young people, their families and communities to develop positive behaviours, reflective skills, and critical thinking – giving them the skills and confidence to make better choices and reach their full potential.


DARE Foundation New Zealand was established in 1990


DARE New Zealand is not the same programme as the American programme D.A.R.E.
