Welcome to the Pennsylvania Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) home page. Here you will find valuable information on how to establish a SADD chapter, as well as, resources to sustain an existing chapter.

Take a moment to read about our upcoming statewide SADD Conferences. On this site, you will also find SADD’s Mission Statement, the current PA SADD Student of the Year, along with many great ideas on our “Activities Guide” web page. Stay on top of what’s new and what’s happening by visiting the “PA SADD News” page to view archives of our E-Newsletter, which is jam-packed with valuable material such as upcoming events, chapter activity highlights, technical support, and funding opportunities. For those of you hosting your first meeting here is our guide.

Please keep in mind that we are continuously updating this web site, so we encourage everyone to visit frequently.



On August 1, SADD launched our new SADD Portal! This is a game-changer for SADD Nation and a great resource to support our chapters, advisors, and student leaders. The Portal will make the process easier for you to register, find resources, keep in touch with other alumni, and more! It is a beneficial addition to current and future members and will enhance your abilities to make change happen in your schools and communities.

The SADD Portal comes with many perks for you and your chapter members. Register for the SADD National Conference with a few quick clicks, gain a wealth of downloadable resources for SADD National programs, and even a one-time chapter registration process! Our hope is that this portal will become your go-to destination for all things SADD. With these perks and many more, it is an easy and helpful space for your chapter to utilize what SADD National has to offer you.

With the release of the SADD Portal, we also welcomed a NEW SADD Membership Program! To continue to bring you the resources and information that you have come to love, we have implemented a small $5 annual membership fee for each chapter member.

Click here to register your chapter today! Since the Portal is brand new, when you click the link to get started, EVERY chapter registers as a First-Time Chapter (even if you’ve been a chapter for a long time). After you complete the initial registration, you will be sent your login information to continue with adding your chapter members and gain access to our resources.

Already Registered?

THANK YOU! We are excited that you’ve joined our new registration system and ready to kick off the new school year with you and your students. Your next steps: Log in to the Portal and submit your student’s for membership. Once they are submitted, you will have access to even more resources.
