Embracing Positive Community Norms for a Brighter Future


DOSA has embraced the power of Positive Community Norms (PCNs)  

Positive Community Norms is rooted in the understanding that people are influenced by what they perceive as the norm within their social circles. By showcasing the uplifting actions of those around us, we seek to inspire positive change and motivate our youth to make healthier decisions.

Through a variety of programs, events, and educational initiatives, we are actively working to cultivate an atmosphere where positive behaviors are not only acknowledged but also celebrated. We believe that this approach not only empowers individuals to make better choices, but it also creates a sense of unity and pride within our community.
