Overview

Mission Statement

SADD's mission is to provide students with the best prevention tools possible to deal with the issues of underage drinking, other drug use, risky and impaired driving, teen violence and suicide, and other destructive decisions.

Background Statement

SADD was founded as Students Against Driving Drunk in 1981 in Wayland, Massachusetts. Two high school hockey players had been killed days apart in alcohol-related crashes, and a group of students, organized by the school’s hockey coach, came together to try to reduce impaired driving among teens, the leading cause of death at that time. The organization quickly took off nationally, establishing chapters across many states, and became the leading peer-to-peer prevention education program in the United States. Over the 30 years since SADD’s founding, impaired driving deaths among teens have declined by a remarkable 60 percent. SADD reaches into more schools and touches more young people for longer periods of time than does any other program. SADD is so highly recognized and regarded by teens that its “Contract for Life” has become part of the teenage vernacular. In 1997, SADD expanded its mission to address issues beyond impaired driving to include prevention of underage drinking, other drug use, and teen violence and suicide. At students’ request, SADD officially expanded its mission and schools now use the name SADD or Students Against Destructive Decisions to reflect this broadened focus. SADD continues to emphasize its strong “No Use” message for underage drinking and firmly opposes parent-supervised drinking and designated driver and safe rides programs for teens. 

Impact Statement

SADD is proud of its role in helping young people promote positive decision-making and choose healthy lifestyles. Recent highlights: SADD partnered with AT&T on the "It Can Wait" anti-texting while driving pledge which reached more than one million young people with its important safety message; SADD, Seventeen magazine, and the Sundance Channel partnered on a pro-social media campaign which helped raise awareness about underage drinking and driving, reaching millions with prevention messaging; SADD youth leaders met with federal representatives at the 2013 Teen Distracted Driving Summit in Washington, DC and shared their views on how to reduce distracted driving injuries and fatalities; 400 youth from 32 states received leadership development training at the 2013 SADD National Conference in Orlando, Florida, and brought back innovative new programming and resources to enhance their prevention work in their schools and communities; SADD students helped the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) launch its PEERx prescription drug initiative and also developed an inhalant prevention curriculum with the Alliance for Consumer Education (ACE) for middle school students and high school peer leaders; the successful launch of SADD SPEAKs, our youth advocacy institute, which trained 22 youth from 16 states for legislative visits on Capitol Hill to share their unique perspectives in regards to prevention, policy, and programming in traffic safety. Top goals for this year include our youth leadership development program to be held in Washington, DC in June 2014, in conjunction with the second annual SADD SPEAKs training; development of new programming on anti-bullying for middle and high school youth; experiential training and team building for SADD's state coordinators and our national student leadership council; and new high-quality prevention programming.


Needs Statement

A national nonprofit organization committed to youth empowerment, SADD is open to all students – we are an inclusive, not an exclusive organization. Starting a SADD chapter is free; SADD National does not charge any dues or membership fees. We count on contributions from the giving public, as well as government and foundation grants and awards, to help advance SADD’s work and mission of youth health and safety.  SADD's most pressing financial priorities will be: 1) funding for an updated website ($25,000) and a database which will be used to register all SADD chapters across the country and communicate with same ($25,000; 2) underwriting the yearlong training program of SADD's National Student Leadership Council ($100,000); 3) sponsorship of an inspiring and exciting youth leadership development program for teenagers to be held in Washington, DC, in June 2014 ($75,000); and 4) monies for the second annual SADD SPEAKs youth advocacy institute ($75,000); and 5) monies for updated computers and related software ($20,000).

CEO Statement

"During the past 34 years, SADD has left a tangible mark on American society. Beyond the amazing statistics representing a culture change on the issue of impaired driving, SADD has contributed to development of a powerful and proud personal identity for hundreds of thousands of teenagers. SADD chapters have been those places in schools and communities where teenagers have stood up and spoken out for a safe and healthy future for themselves and for their friends. Yesterday's SADD students are today's civic and business leaders, continuing to assert their individuality and pursue their purpose of making their families, friends, and communities safer, stronger, and healthier. We thank all of those who have been involved with SADD in the past and who invest in SADD now. You are doing important work, and you are making a difference."
 
                           Penny Wells, President & CEO
 

Board Chair Statement

“SADD is at a turning point in its rich history. We are moving in a concerted way to capitalize on that potential, with new board members, new committees, an upcoming strategic plan, and new energy as well as a strong and committed staff.  Frankly, we are unable to realize that potential without additional financial support. Our core financing does not cover the work we do, and we hope that we pull in sponsorships, grants, and donations to enable us to carry our staff and execute our commitments. The Board members are excited to be part of a new era of SADD, and we’re committed to making a difference. We hope you will consider making an investment in today's teens as well.”

SADD National Awareness Program

For 34 years, SADD has empowered young people to lead education and prevention iniatives in their schools and communities. Young people building vital connections with their peers are the strongest force in prevention.  Through education, advocacy, and activism, hundreds of thousands of America's youth have endorsed this idea, promoting good decision-making, choosing healthy lifestyles, and keeping their peers safe. SADD supports the growth and development of chapters primarily in middle and high schools across the country through prevention programming and peer leadership training and promotes awareness of youth health and safety issues to the general public. SADD participates in regional and national forums and coalitions focused on issues related to its mission: underage drinking, other drug use, risky and impaired driving, teen violence and suicide, and other destructive decisions. SADD also supports a network of state coordinators funded through government or charitable organizations to help deliver quality education and prevention materials and programming.
 
Independent studies have shown that students in schools with an established SADD chapter are more aware of and informed about the risks of underage drinking, other drug use, and impaired driving. Students in schools with a SADD chapter are also more likely to hold attitudes reflecting positive reasons not to use alcohol.
 
Beyond the amazing statistics representing a culture change to the issue of impaired driving, SADD has contributed to the development of a powerful and proud personal identity for hundreds of thousands of teenagers. SADD chapters have been those places in schools where teenagers have stood up and spoken out for a safe and healthy future for themselves and their friends.  Yesterday's SADD students are today's civic and business leaders, continuing to assert their individuality and purse their goal of making their families and communities safer, stronger, and healthier.

Program Short-Term Success 
Every year, established SADD chapters re-register with the National office of SADD and new SADD chapters register for the first time, benefiting from the array of free tools, services, and resources that SADD, Inc. can offer. SADD distributes two electronic newsletters and communicates directly with youth through social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIN, and YouTube; hosts a website which averages 59,200 visitors monthly; regularly releases to media outlets opinion-editorials and articles on pertinent youth-oriented topics; conducts and reports on national research on teen attitudes and behaviors; runs a four-day national youth leadership conference annually; sponsors a National Student Leadership Council and Student of the Year, providing members with four peer leadership training retreats; hosts a SADD Speaker Series of motivational presentations highlighting original SADD research and practical solutions to difficult issues; and most importantly, raises funds for the development and dissemination of information and programming.
According to national research, 86 percent of teens and 95 percent of parents who are aware of SADD think SADD plays a positive role in influencing the choices teens make.
Program Long-Term Success 
Since 1981, SADD has grown to become the leading youth-based prevention, education, and activism organization in the country. SADD has a registered network of nearly 10,000 SADD chapters with approximately 350,000 to 500,000 participating youth and more than 10,000 adult advisors. This represents approximately seven million youth in U.S. schools where SADD chapters exist. SADD has left a tangible mark on American society. Since our founding, teenage deaths due to drinking and driving have decreased by 60 percent. Beyond the amazing statistics representing a culture change on the issue of impaired driving, SADD has contributed to the development of a powerful and proud personal identity for hundreds of thousands of teenagers. SADD chapters have been those places in schools and communities where teenagers have stood up and spoken out for a safe and healthy future for themselves and their friends. As an active, established youth prevention program, SADD reaches into more schools and touches more young people for longer periods of time than does any other program. We are committed to delivering quality prevention education programming and continuously enhancing our ability to effectively reach young people, their families, and other caring adults.
Program Success Monitored By 
SADD monitors progress of key campaign activities through evaluations submitted by SADD advisors from throughout the country, providing information and trainings on science-based prevention programming, and sharing "best practices" to encourage SADD chapters to replicate effective programming and awareness activities that have proven successful elsewhere. 
 
SADD's underage drinking prevention program, "Mobilizing the Community: Youth Taking the Lead," employes strategies over an academic year working with students, parents, community members, and the media. SADD conducts baseline and post-campaign assessments of both student and parent message exposure and outcomes in order to assess changes in attitudes and behaviors around underage drinking use associated with exposure to this SADD program. Students complete self-administered surveys in a classroom or group setting during the school day. Questionnaires include scales that request they report their attitudes and behaviors around drinking. These measures assess current, lifetime, and binge drinking as well as riding in the car with an intoxicated driver. Parents respond to online surveys. Students and parents are asked to answer questions about their exposure to campaign messages and perception of the campaign; youth, community, and school-wide norms related to alcohol use; drinking outcome expectancies; drinking as something that might interrupt life goals; sensation-seeking tendencies; and parent rules and communication about alcohol. SADD staff coordinates with school officials to discuss current policy and enforcement strategies employed to reduce underage drinking.
 
Nominated in 2012 by the MA Department of Public Health for participation as a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) "Service to Science" model program, a national initiative for locally-developed and innovative prevention programs interested in demonstrating more credible evidence of effectiveness.
Examples of Program Success 
Bridget R. of ND shares, "SADD's impact goes far beyond teaching students to make healthy, positive choices. It taught me how to have a voice, gave me the confidence to stand up for what I believe in, and nurtured the skills, beliefs, and traits that are shaping my future."
 
"Since my freshman year of high school, I always think of SADD as providing me opportunity in so many aspects of my life - the opportunity to stand for my beliefs, to explore beyond Kansas, to appreciate uniqueness, and to know a dynamic network of genuine people willing to challenge and support me," shares Stephen W. KS.
 
Evelyn S. from NJ shares, "Going to the SADD National Conference is one of the best experiences of my life. I have learned so many different things from the detailed workshops provided. After my first conference, I came back home pumped and ready to make my SADD chapter as great as it could be. I was filled with new ideas and excited to succeed."

State Awareness Program

SADD implements a research-based prevention education program in targeted communities in the Commonwealth that engages youth and influential adults in preventing underage drinking. This campaign challenges several deeply-held beliefs: that most teens are drinking alcohol; that there are no real negative consequences when teens drink; that teens don't face any peer pressure to drink; and that drinking is a "rite of passage" for teens as they approach adulthood. This innovative, multi-component campaign also involves parents, school administrators, law enforcement, and the local media as it helps youth and adults challenge these common beliefs and assists community leaders to clarify and enforce policies that deter youth drinking. The National office of SADD also houses the Massachusetts SADD program which conducts a full range of programming and youth leadership development training with more than 300 SADD chapters in schools across the Commonwealth.

Population Served Children and Youth (0 - 19 years) Adults Families
Program Short-Term Success 
Students complete self-administered surveys in classrooms during the school day. Questionnaires include scales that request they report their attitudes and behaviors about drinking. These measures assess current, lifetime, and binge drinking as well as perceptions of others' behaviors around underage drinking. Parents respond to online surveys. Students and parents in the target communities have been highly engaged in this process. They are asked to answer questions about their exposure to campaign messages and perceptions of the campaign; youth, community, and school-wide norms related to alcohol use; drinking outcome expectancies; drinking as something that might interrupt life goals; sensation-seeking tendencies; and parent rules and communication about alcohol. SADD staff coordinates with school officials to discuss current policy and enforcement strategies employed to reduce underage drinking. All data is to be compiled, analyzed, and prepared for an executive summary.  
Program Long-Term Success 
The MA Department of Public Health nominated this youth-focused, research-based underage drinking prevention program, "Mobilizing the Community: Youth Taking the Lead," for consideration as a "Service to Science" program.  A national initiative sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and its Center for the Application of Prevention Technologies (CAPT), Service to Science is for locally-developed and innovative prevention programs interested in demonstrating more credible evidence of effectiveness. SADD conducts baseline and post-campaign assessments of both student and parent message exposure and outcomes in order to assess changes in attitudes and behaviors around underage drinking use. Post evaluation, it is anticipated that a national campaign model will emerge from this local pilot implemented in targeted communities in the Commonwealth.  SADD will then roll out this program through its chapter network nationwide.
Program Success Monitored By 
SADD has obtained preliminary evidence of positive impact on outcomes related to youth drinking in this pilot and a second round of implementation in targeted schools in the Commonwealth. Program improvements and refinements were made throughout the implementation periods to incorporate findings from the process evaluation. The evaluation validated measures and survey instruments for youth and parents that can be used for future research. With additional support, SADD plans to contract an evaluator to make key recommendations for further developing this program, refining the program logic model and evaluation plan, and targeting possible funding mechanisms and research staff to conduct a formal evaluation. 
As mentioned, the MA DPH has already nominated this underage drinking prevention program for a SAMHSA "Service to Science" initiative that evaluates and recognizes proven effective programming.
Examples of Program Success 
This underage drinking prevention program is designed to help youth and adults challenge common beliefs about underage drinking and to assist community leaders to clarify and enforce policies that deter youth drinking.
Although results will be available post evaluation, our primary funder has already seen fit to nominate this campaign to be considered as a national program model showing credible evidence of effectiveness.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

The reason SADD’s prevention campaigns and activities are so effective is that SADD follows a science-based approach in designing all of its programming. Following the conclusions of the leading research studies of the past two decades, SADD constructs its prevention programs to enhance protective factors and move toward reducing known risk factors. SADD’s programming addresses change not only at the individual level but also at the peer, school, family, community, and larger society levels: research reveals that such a coordinated, collaborative approach is necessary to prevent substance abuse and violence among youth.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

Members of SADD's Executive Committee, working with the CEO and a pro bono Board development consultant, have been working aggressively over the past 18 months to strategically build the board, based on skill sets needed and targeted goals.  To date, SADD has defined and implemented a formal Board member job description and orientation process; developed and launched three new standing committees beyond the existing Executive, Audit, and Resource Development Committees; developed an ongoing process to identify, nominate, vet, recruit and orient new Board members; and has successfully engaged two new board members with plans to bring on three or four additional directors in time for the fall Board meeting. As a youth-driven, youth-focused organization, SADD is ensuring the youth voice extends into several key committees, including resource development and strategic planning. With the aggressive timetable, SADD has postponed updating its most recent five-year strategic plan until this fall, although initial Strategic Planning Committee members have been identified. The transformational change in this board will ensure a more fully engaged and active board that has the skill sets necessary to focus on major fundraising initiatives needed to help grow and position SADD to operate more efficiently and effectively with all of its constituents.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

With improved governance and a new strategic plan, the board will face the challenge of identifying a stable and sustainable financial model. Our network is broad but youth-driven and grassroots. Our services are free, but we have the potential to leverage our network to obtain a robust mix of corporate, foundation, government and donor support. Our connection toMassachusetts, where SADD was founded, serves as a stable foundation as well as a laboratory for our prevention education efforts. Our challenge is to realize financial support through our connections to teens and their families and communities while staying true to our mission.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
