Creative, Inspiring Ways People Are Using Dare to Care
It has always been a goal of our program to reach as many parents, educators and students as possible. It’s been incredibly inspiring to me to find that people and organizations recognize the value of our bullying prevention content and are eager to give access to members of their communities.
Read on for a few stand-out examples of how individuals and organizations have brought Dare to Care content to their constituents.

Preparing the next generation of teachers to manage bullying situations.
For the 2022-23 academic year, Niagara College made completion of Dare to Care’s professional development modules a mandatory part of their Early Childhood Education degree program. Thanks to their forward-thinking approach, 147 educators and counting will start their careers with proven strategies to handle bullying situations when they arise. Niagara College has renewed with us for 2023-24.
Rotary Club of Calgary at Stampede Park:
Raising funds to make Dare to Care more affordable for dozens of schools in their area.
The Rotary Club of Calgary at Stampede Park holds an annual golf fundraiser and earmarked part of their proceeds to cover up to 85% of the cost of our program for schools in the greater Calgary area. To date, 46 schools have taken advantage of this opportunity to secure a year of unlimited school-wide access.
For the United Nations Anti-Bullying Day on May 4th, BRP purchased the Dare to Care virtual parent modules and made them available on their resource hub for all of their stakeholders, including the rider community, dealers, employees, partners, brands, etc.
School safety is a stressful issue for so many parents and the Dare to Care parent modules are designed to help parents 'bully-proof' their children through education, skill development and support. Well done BRP for supporting your parent/guardian community.
