The investment you make to DFYIT youth enables them to be part of a positive youth movement - and among our communities' next generation of leaders. Please consider investing in their future.
Since 1992, over 100,000 South Florida middle and senior high school students have committed to follow DFYIT's principles of remaining drug, alcohol and tobacco free. DFYIT members embrace the principles of positive peer pressure and declare their drug-free status through voluntary drug screening. Members also participate in substance abuse prevention education, community service, advocacy awareness, and reward and recognition events honoring their achievements. Annually members donate over 100,000 documented hours of community service learning life-long lessons of philanthropy and community bonding. All DFYIT activities and events are free to our student members.
DFYIT relies on grants, sponsorships and donations received to provide its drug prevention program and activities to at risk youth in Miami-Dade and Broward County. Your involvement and generosity will make a significant impact in the lives of thousands of youth. We welcome you to become one of our community partners and join along with many local businesses, municipalities, police departments, corporations and caring individuals who share a vision that our communities' youth have a chance to grow and mature into drug-free adults.
||"For more than a decade, DFYIT has provided Miami's youth with programs to help them cope wth a pressure-packed world. Whether it's avoiding drugs or working through relationships with peers and adults, DFYIT helps kids make it and rewards them for positive performance. DFYIT is a value-added program for its participants and our community." - Barry Johnson, President/CEO, Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce|
||"On behalf of the residents of our community, let me acknowledge the important role that Drug Free Youth In Town (DFYIT) plays in our lives. Making our society drug free is a goal of the highest priority and DFYIT leads the way. For that reason the DFYIT program is needed in every school across South Florida to help all of our children reject drug use and combat drug abuse." - Don Slesnick, Mayor, City of Coral Gables|
"The DFYIT organization did not "sugar coat" the realities of drugs and alcohol. They bring the information straight forward so that we could fully understand what we could possibly be getting ourselves into if we took part in such life changing activities."
- Natasha Gardner, American High
"DFYIT is a chance for me to be part of the community and help kids to understand the significance of being drug free in their lives."
- Daniel Espinosa, Southwest Miami High
