Students at Clarke Central High School, Classic City High School and Cedar Shoals High School have joined SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions), a peer leadership organization dedicated to preventing destructive decisions, particularly underage drinking, other drug use, impaired driving, and teen violence and suicide.
The CCSD SADD Chapter seeks students with leadership and decision-making skills to represent the Clarke County School District in the community in order to reduce underage drinking. The only requirements for students are that they must currently be alcohol and drug free and willing to spread information about making positive choices.
Students will be joining the Youth Advisory Board and will participate in awareness campaigns throughout their schools but also assist with Sticker Shock and Positive Social Norms. Tonya Knox, MPH serves as advisor for the Youth Advisory Board.
Students can complete the Youth Advisory Board/ Students Against Destructive Decisions Clarke County School District Application and will be sent an email to schedule an interview for this committee.
Questions: Contact Tonya Knox at 706-612-8917 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Founded as Students Against Driving Drunk in 1981 in Wayland, Massachusetts, SADD has grown to become the nation’s premier peer-led youth education and prevention organization, with thousands of chapters in middle schools, high schools, and colleges. In 1997, in response to requests from SADD students themselves, SADD expanded its mission and now sponsors chapters called Students Against Destructive Decisions.
