Prevention is one of Dans la rue's key areas of focus. We do this by educating high-school kids and at risk kids about the realities of life on the street and by working with community workers to provide them with effective prevention strategies.
Our staff has developed an innovative program designed to prevent gang recruitment and gang-related sexual exploitation and assault of girls and to prevent teens from running away by raising awareness among boys and girls about the dangers of street life.
Dans la rue has two outreach counsellors who visit schools around the region and give presentations using special tools designed to encourage discussion and raise awareness about the dangers and hardships of life on the streets. [More]
