Prestera Center FAQ

Today, we are talking again about the Wayne Co Prevention Coalition and we have with us students from the SADD Chapters from Tolsia HS and Buffalo Middle School. So tell us, what does S.A.D.D. stand for?
S.A.D.D. stands for Students Against Destructive Decisions and we are The Nation's Premier Youth Health & Safety Organization. We have SADD Chapters in middle schools and high schools in Wayne Co. and all across WV and the US. SADD’s mission is to empower young people to successfully confront the risks and pressures that challenge them in their daily lives

So what is the purpose and mission of SADD?
Our focus is 4 fold – Youth Leadership Development, Traffic Safety, Substance Abuse and Personal health and safety. We are the voice of prevention to our peers as it comes to not texting and driving or distractive driving, understanding the dangers of using tobacco, alcohol and drugs, bullying and suicide prevention.

So tell us what are some of the specific events or activities you have sponsored or coordinated?
We have sponsored tobacco free, alcohol free and drug free dances and pool parties. We host After-prom parties that provide a safe, drug free place for our peers to go after prom. We speak to students in elementary schools and middle schools about making good choices. Last July we attended the National SADD Conference in Pittsburgh and next month we will be attending the WV State SADD Conference at Camp Dawson. This is National Red Ribbon Week so we are hosting all kinds of events to focus on living a drug free life.

Why is it important for you to be involved in SADD?
We are concerned about the fundamental mental and physical health of our teens and take price in making a difference.

Thanks again for joining us today and telling our viewers about SADD and what SADD is all about.
Thanks Taylor for having us and we want to present you with a Wayne Co SADD t-shirt and welcome you as an honorary member.
