Final Paper There are currently two programs specifically in Henderson County which I am writing this paper about. One of the programs is the local Boys and Girls Club of Henderson County and the D.A.R.E. Program of Henderson County.

It is a great prevention method by putting trouble children with friends who will support them and mentors that will teach them how to live and have a successful life. The Boys and Girls Club of Henderson County will ultimately be successful in the long run. My definition of ultimately successful is helping any amount of children become more successful in life and divert them from making the wrong choices, which is exactly what the Boys and Girls Club is accomplishing with their programs all around the world including Henderson County. The local D.A.R.E. program in Henderson County is another great program offered by Henderson County. I agree with making the D.A.R.E. program mandatory in elementary schools, if you target the children at a young age it accomplishes more before they get into drugs. The D.A.R.E program is not only in North Carolina, when I was in 5th grade I went through it in Florida where I went to elementary school, I know it
