The more aware you are of the influences around you, the better prepared you will be to face them, including the pressure to use drugs and alcohol. We’re not telling you how to live your life, but we are giving you another perspective and the latest facts. You need to make your own smart decisions. Click HERE.
Students Against Destructive Decisions
While SADD students are taking on important issues in their communities, they are offered leadership development opportunities that prepare them to meet the challenges of adolescence and adulthood and achieve their full potential. Each SADD student is expected to contribute, be accountable, creative, and be a part of the solution and that builds leadership.
SADD students have the opportunity to practice and develop tangible life skills including public speaking, business writing, project management, forming and working within diverse coalitions and working groups, fundraising, event management, public health prevention, and working with media, civic, and business leaders.
