SADD empowers and mobilizes students and adult allies to engage in positive change through leadership and smart decision-making.
All students collaborate to create a healthier and safer world, one positive decision at a time.
SADD students lead at the national and state levels, rooted in our school and community-based, peer-to-peer chapters.
SADD develops and shares prevention programming to engage students in the pursuit
of healthy decision-making.
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.
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.
