The NEW SADD Portal and Membership Program!
On August 1, SADD launched our new SADD Portal! This is a game-changer for ALL members of SADD Nation and is a great resource that will support our chapters, advisors, AND student leaders. The idea is that we can make the process easier for you to register, find resources, keep in touch with other alumni, and more! The SADD Portal is sure to be a beneficial addition to current and future members of SADD Nation and will enhance your abilities to make change happen in your schools and communities.
The SADD Portal comes with many perks for you and your chapter members! Register for the SADD National Conference with a few quick clicks, gain a wealth of download resources for SADD National programs at your fingertips, and even go through a one-time chapter registration process! Our hope is that this portal will become your go-to destination for all things SADD. With these perks and MANY more, it will be an easy and helpful space for your chapter to utilize what SADD National has to offer you!
With the release of the SADD Portal, we are also welcoming a NEW SADD Membership Program! To continue to bring you the resources and information that you have come to love, we have implemented a small $5 annual membership fee for each chapter member.
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.
