All across the nation, young people are taking their lives and their futures into their own hands, and not letting themselves be negatively influenced by others who may not have their best interests in mind.
Best of all, young people are finding out that they really aren’t sacrificing anything by staying away from the traditional “party scene.” Instead they are finding themselves surrounded by others who feel exactly the same way they do. Not only that, they are finding that SADD members also possess a natural tendency to accept people simply for being who they are. No “power struggles,” no “put downs,” none of the little “games” that some people play. In the end, that is what seems to make SADD such a special organization.
National SADD changed its name to Students Against Destructive Decisions in 1997. This coincided with a fundamental change in the minds of young people across the nation at the time. We all seemed to know that “Students Against Driving Drunk” didn’t quite work to reflect what the organization had come to mean to SADD students. When we saw the new name, it was like, “That’s it! Exactly!”
SADD is more of an overall attitude. It is a much bigger, broader thing that is hard to quantify. What SADD is all about is self-esteem. It is as simple as that – self-esteem. Why? Because, for everyone, it feels good to make the decisions that you know in your heart are right,. SADD proves that we are not alone.
That leads us to where we are now. We are now “SADD Casa Grande,” a network of chapters in our community. The reasons should be pretty obvious by now. We are adding new and innovative programs, and SADD members will be having new expierences and will be learning new skills tht will contribute to building successful lives1
As the Casa Grande Alliance, it is an honor for us to do our best to keep SADD current and an important part of the lives of the students and communities we serve. Through SADD, we are empowering our youth to make positive change in the world, one decision at a time!
Imagine a world where all families are connected to what they need to nurture their children.
What would that look like?
Casa Grande Alliance presents Lean On Me AZ, a movement to raise awareness about the factors that protect families from overwhelming stress, and offer strategies to help community members strengthen families in everyday ways. We will discuss how we, as individuals and communities, can create a culture of family support so that all children can thrive.
We will provide dinner during our discussion as well as child care during the event.
Space is limited please register soon!
