Student Advisory Board

Students Against Destructive DecisionsThe SADD Student Advisory Board (SAB) is a group of students from across the state who work with the state coordinator and represent their peers at the state level. These students are leaders in their SADD chapters and positive role models who practice the “No Use” lifestyle. They are also involved in community service, especially projects related to SADD’s mission of empowering young people to make positive decisions about important issues in their lives. The members also conduct workshops, represent SADD at meetings and safety events, and speak to the press about issues central to SADD’s mission. The SAB provides the opportunity for students to be creative, strengthen their leadership skills, and engage in public speaking.
