Episode #23: Pearls for Pennies

Presented by Steve Cook. I am pleased to welcome for another show the former martial arts champion Pete Dwan, whose 11-year Drug Free Kids campaign is revolutionizing drug education and opening up a way forward to a drug free future.

Today Pete gives us another report on the progress of his Drug Free Kids campaign.
We go over how this campaign is designed to help children help themselves and help teachers and parents help the children.


We discuss the inherently simple yet incredibly powerful talk that Pete has developed over 11 years of giving drug education presentations and what makes Pete’s approach so successful.

We go over how unbelievably cost-effective it is to get this vital education to children and – in a very real sense – pearls for pennies.

Pete covers how an effective drug education campaign can arm our children with knowledge and help protect them against the inevitable lies and sales tricks they will encounter from dealers as they get older.

Pete finishes off by reading out a few of the thousands of success stories and positive feedback he has received from children AND their teachers.

The years of toil Pete has devoted to perfecting a highly effective way of communicating the difficult subject of drugs to children and youth have yielded powerful tools that enable parents, teachers, youth and community workers to help their children.

I am honoured to present Pete’s tireless and ground-breaking work. He is truly one of the world’s great pioneers in the field of drug education.
