By creating, equipping, and deploying a national network of chapters in High Schools, Middle Schools, and Colleges, the organization reaches millions of young people each year, helping them face the greatest pressures in their daily lives.

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