OUR VALUES

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.

Our mission is accomplished by creating, equipping, and sustaining a network of student-run chapters in schools and communities focused on peer-to-peer education. SADD fosters a sense of belonging and promotes resiliency, leadership, and advocacy skills so that young people make positive life decisions that will carry them throughout life.
