What We Care About

Making a Difference in the Lives of our Youth with SADD

What We Care About

SADD believes that to find the solutions to the big issues our teens are dealing with, the teens themselves must have a voice and they must be part of the solution. SADD exists to empower teens, to provide the tools they need to inspire positive action, to become leaders and role models, and to create a community-based approach to addressing the most critical issues that face teens today.

Automobile crashes remain the number one killer of teens and until that statistic changes, SADD’s core focus will be in traffic safety. However, we know that underlying issues often exist, which can influence driving behavior and decision making. We care about those issues, as well. Our students have a voice and they have asked for tools to address these other issues, including substance abuse, depression, suicide, and teen violence and bullying.

With an estimated 10,000 chapters and 400,000+ SADD students across the country, plus millions of alumni, the work we do has the potential to create the change our young people want to see in the world!

Below are our additional focus areas:

  • Youth Leadership Development: SADD students are offered various opportunities to practice and develop life skills that will allow them to meet the everyday challenges of adulthood. Learn more…
