Top 10 Reasons to Join SADD

  1. For something to do with all your free time. Well, free time might be an exaggeration, but there are a lot of ways to be involved. Come to a meeting and see for yourself.
  1. To be Substance-free. It can be hard to say no in the face of peer pressure. By being a part of SADD, you’ll have lots of other people supporting you and your choice to lead a healthy and safe lifestyle.
  1. To gain the trust and respect of your friends and family. Your parents are less likely to give you the third degree about where you’re going after school and on the weekends if they know they can trust you to say no to drugs and alcohol.
  1. To get involved in the community. Being part of SADD will give you a chance to work on a lot of different projects both in school and out in the community. It’s a great chance to meet new people.
  1. To meet other cool substance-free people. Joining the SADD chapter will give you a chance to hang out with a new crowd of strong, independent thinkers who are willing to stand up for what they believe.
  1. To plan awesome events for the rest of the school. Tired of the same old extracurricular activities and events? Being part of SADD will give you a chance to help plan new and exciting events for the whole school while helping to spread the “No Use” message.
  1. To be a role model. There’s no better feeling than having your peers, younger students, and siblings look up to you and be proud of your choices. Being part of SADD will give you a chance to empower others to follow your lead by saying no to drugs and alcohol.
  1. To make good friends. Although SADD students have many different interests, perspectives, experiences, and ideas, they have in common a commitment to health and safety.
  1. For fun. SADD’s not just all work and no play. Lend your creativity and energy to make this year’s activities a success.
  1. Dedication to make a change. Tired of stupid mistakes and dangerous choices that go along with a drinking and drug culture? Be part of the answer, not part of the problem.
