Chapter Recognition Program

SADD STRONG NATIONAL CHAPTER CAMPAIGNS

SADD’s strength lies in numbers. To demonstrate our impact as SADD Nation, all chapters conduct campaigns and activities at the same time of year, we call it being SADD STRONG!
The SADD national office with the help of its many partners around the country have developed a collection of THREE programs that target SADD’s three core issue areas. (Traffic Safety, Substance Abuse, and Personal Health & Safety).  Implementing these programs also qualifies chapters for the WE ARE SADD STRONG Achievement and Recognition Program!

  • OctoberRock the Belt, in conjunction with National Teen Driver Safety Week
  • FebruarySADD Shines Week, held to celebrate SADD students and all you do and promote personal health and safety
  • April –  It Worth The Risk?, in conjunction with Alcohol Awareness Month

All SADD STRONG programs are comprised of an activity guide, packed with relevant activity ideas and media templates.  Chapters may also purchase a starter kit for Rock the Belt, filled with starter supplies and the t-shirts needed for the suggested activities. The activity guides aim to target three core constituencies: schools, parents, and communities.
