Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) Mission

To provide students with the best prevention tools possible to deal with the issues of underage drinking, other drug use, risky and impaired driving, and other destructive decisions.

Originally, the mission of the SADD chapter was to help young people say “No” to drinking and driving. Today, the mission has expanded. Students have told us that positive peer pressure, role modeling and environmental strategies can prevent other destructive decisions and set a healthier, safer course for their lives. And that is why SADD has become a peer-to-peer education, prevention, and activism organization dedicated to preventing destructive decisions, particularly underage drinking, other drug use, risky and impaired driving, teen  violence, and teen suicide.

Vermont Teen Leadership Safety Program (VTLSP) Mission                                            

The purpose of VTLSP is to develop among teen leaders an awareness of prevention and wellness issues including alcohol and other drug use, traffic safety, and risk taking behaviors, and to provide them with the resources, skills and adult support with which to facilitate positive change among their peers.

VTLSP assures positive outcomes among its members by:

  • Increasing bonds
  • Teaching “life” skills
  • Setting and consistently enforcing expectations
  • Providing caring and support
  • Providing high expectation for success
  • Providing opportunities for meaningful participation/contribution
We meet every Wednesday at 7:30am in the Library.
