How to start a SADD Chapter
- Register online at SADD.org
- Contact your SADD State Coordinator: Kansas Family Partnership, 1.800.206.7231 or firstname.lastname@example.org
- Recruit participants
- Work with or designate your chapter advisor
- Organize your chapter, including electing and delegating officer responsibilities
- Make meetings informative, interesting and fun
- Ensure that each individual feels included and get the scoop on group dynamics in a meeting
- Plan fundraising ideas that are fun and profitable so you can attend the KS SADD conference in April!
- Each SADD chapter is unique. You will decide what activities work best within your community. You may decide to form a chapter at school, but you can also establish a SADD chapter in places of worship or in community centers. Sometimes youth groups decide to form SADD chapters. Remember: SADD is open to all students. It is an inclusive organization.
- Students work together in the chapter to spread SADD’s message about the following:
- SADD’s “No Use” position in regard to alcohol
- The elimination of death and injury due to underage drinking, impaired driving, and other destructive behaviors
- Information about the dangerous consequences related to the use of alcohol and other drugs
