Vision Statement: All students collaborate to create a healthier and safer world, one positive decision at a time.
Student-Led: SADD students lead at the national and state levels, rooted in our school and community-based, peer-to-peer chapters.
Action: SADD develops and shares prevention programming to engage students in the pursuit of healthy decision-making.
Inclusion: SADD fosters a sense of belonging among students from a wide range of identities and experiences who are committed to improving the health and safety of all students and communities.
Leadership: Students and adult allies passionately advance the mission of SADD through character, integrity, and service.
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.
SADD meets every other Wednesday after school in Room 157. Members are expected to attend each meeting. Student Officers are expected to attend pre-club meetings with the sponsors to finalize meeting agendas and to coordinate club activities. Members who have conflicts with the meeting dates, should communicate the conflict with the sponsors prior to the meeting.
