SADD encourages students to make positive decisions in their lives.


SADD is an inclusive organization, welcoming all students who seek support for healthy and safe development. We promote broad understanding of the risks facing youth and the importance of reinforcing protective factors. We do this through scientifically supported programs and practices and by sharing youth voices and youth perspectives on issues and laws and policies that involve the education, culture, health, safety, and treatment of youth. All students are welcome to join at any point throughout the year. 

Vision Statement

SADD is a respectful organization that invites active youth participation and expects youth leadership. Youth voices will be sought out, respected, strengthened, shared, and affirmed. We believe young people’s health and safety is improved through positive peer-to-peer interactions, healthy relationships with family and caring adults, and collaboration and alliance with other entities that also support youth.

A few examples of topics we cover are:

  • Youth Leadership
  • Traffic Safety (distracted/impaired driving)
  • Substance Abuse (drugs, alcohol, tobacco)
  • Personal Health and Safety (physical/emotional abuse, depression and anxiety)
  • Bullying 
  • Cyber Citizenship
  • Service Projects such as our Holiday Card Making Party for ManorCare Rehabilitation Center.
Membership Expectation

SADD meets every other Tuesday after school in room 108. Members are expected to attend each meeting. Students can also make arrangements with Mr. Brida if they cannot attend because of another activity or sport.
