Given the power and potential of student activism, service, and leadership, we hereby join the SADD Chapter Network. We pledge to end the tragedies resulting from underage drinking, alcohol-related crashes, and other destructive decisions, and to create positive change in our lives.
This organization shall be known as Mater Lakes High School SADD, Students against Destructive Decisions/ Students against Driving Drunk.
SADD, Students against Destructive Decisions, is a high school-based organization dedicated to addressing the issues of underage drinking, drug use, and other destructive decisions and killers of young people. SADD’s mission is to provide students with the best prevention and intervention tools possible to deal with the serious issues young adults are facing today. Empowerment is SADD’s basic principle. The idea of empowerment is to build students’’ confidence and ability to create changes and manage behavior in a way that results in healthy life choices. SADD promotes a message of “No Use” of alcohol or drugs and encourages students not to participate in activities with destructive consequences. SADD offers life lessons that will lead members well into the 21st century.
Membership is open to all students who accept these goals:
-To end underage drinking, drinking and driving, drug use and other destructive decisions.
-To refuse to ride with a driver who has been drinking or using drugs.
-To help others do the same.
A local chapter is considered part of SADD if it supports this constitution.
Seniors must do at least 20 hours of service in order to receive a chord or if they have been a member for more than 2 years, previous participation will be considered.
