Is your school or non-profit community organization ready to start a SADD chapter? Get started today! It’s simple, and the annual membership fee is only $5!
To start a SADD chapter:
- First, ask about the process at your school to start a school club/activity. SADD chapters function as school clubs/activities. Some schools have a formal approval process for starting a new club, which can vary from school to school, so first find out what’s required.
- Find an Advisor. Schools require a faculty or staff member to serve as the sponsor of a school club. This will be your SADD Advisor and can be teachers, counselors, coaches, secretaries, or any staff member.
- Register your chapter. All SADD chapters must register with the Portal. Registration is $5 and takes just a few minutes online. You will receive a confirmation email with everything you need to get started.
- Chapter Name. Use SADD in the chapter name, after your school or organization name. Example: “Nashoba Valley High SADD” or “North YMCA SADD” are acceptable.

TEXTLESS LIVE MORE
TextLess Live More is so excited to announce our first ever New Year’s Resolution campaign:
#Get Living. The Get Living Campaign was designed to battle distraction and destructive habits caused by our cell phones. We’ve put together twelve months of habit-forming actions that can help you and your students take control your virtual lives–and not the other way around.
Resolve to Get Living in 2019! Follow along with us each month with a different, habit-forming action that can help you take control your virtual life–and not the other way around. Learn more here:
September: SMS SMH
Each Friday during September, make a phone call instead of texting. Quality conversation is so important, and by texting, we take a huge aspect of what makes conversations and relationships dynamic out of the equation; the human voice!
FaceTime Fridays are also encouraged!
Event Idea: Host a Phone-a-thon. Give a baked good or a positive comment card to those who are having a phone conversation in lieu of texting!
Did you host a TextLess Live More event? Please take time to share how your event went!
