Preparing for Adulthood through Youth Leadership Development

Youth Leadership Development at the Community, State, and National Levels

While SADD students are taking on important issues in their communities, they are offered leadership development opportunities that prepare them to meet the challenges of adolescence and adulthood and achieve his or her full potential. Each SADD student is expected to contribute, to be accountable, to be creative, and to be a part of the solution and that builds leadership.

SADD students have the opportunity to practice and develop tangible life skills including public speaking, business writing, project management, forming and working within diverse coalitions and working groups, fundraising, event management, public health prevention, and working with the media, civic, and business leaders.
