Speakers Bureau

The Dallas Area Drug Prevention Partnership Speakers Bureau represents a collaborative effort between multiple organizations throughout the metroplex, giving us the ability to better accommodate requests from our community. DADPP, along with our various partners, are equipped to handle requests from schools, colleges, sports organizations, companies, non-profits, parents, professional organizations and more.

Our network represents a wide range of knowledge and information to suit any request you may have. Our Speakers Bureau gives the community access to speakers from organizations such as The Council on Alcohol & Drugs, Dallas Police Department, Drug Enforcement Administration, Baylor Scott & White Project RED, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), Mosaic Family Services, Tobacco Free North Texas, Child & Family Guidance Center, Youth 180, and many others. If DADPP is unable to fulfill your request, we are dedicated to finding someone who can.
