DARE2XL, which stands for Dream, Aspire, Reach and Excel, provides first- through eighth-grade children in low-income housing with a motivational environment for learning study skills, preventing problem behaviors and developing self-esteem. The program is based on an excellence-conditioning model, where students learn how to perform well and consistently, not simply to achieve a one-time goal. The focus is on academic excellence, replacing high-risk behaviors outside of the schools with high performance in them.
