The eGOHS Application Process

SADD Application

“Every Life Counts – Strive for Zero Deaths and Injuries on Georgia Roads.”

Revised April 2010



Students Against Destructive Decisions

SADD’s Mission

Originally, the mission of the Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) 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 models and other strategies can help them say “NO” to more than drinking and driving. That is why SADD has become a peer leadership organization dedicated to preventing destructive decisions, particularly underage drinking, other drug use, impaired driving, teen violence, teen depression and suicide.

SADD’s Mission Simply Stated is:

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