SADD

Students against destructive decisions!

What is SADD?

SADD’s mission is to empower young people to successfully confront the risks and pressures that challenge them throughout their daily lives.  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.

SADD Chapter Management Guidance

As an active chapter of Missouri SADD, you are the catalyst for change in your community. Whether you are tackling traffic safety and distracted driving, making a change to prevent abuse of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs, or providing resources for mental health, your SADD chapter will make a difference.
This guide was developed by the Missouri SADD State Office to provide chapters with ideas to develop their chapter, including recruitment and retention of members. Additionally, you’ll find sample ideas for social media, press releases, and more.
