Illinois SADD is a peer leadership organization dedicated to preventing destructive behavior among young people, particularly underage drinking, impaired and distracted driving, teen violence, teen depression and suicide. In Illinois, SADD has more than 200 chapters in schools throughout the state and focus on a broad scope of issues. Illinois SADD provides training to students in prevention best practices to empower young people to become agents of change in their schools and communities. Students are seen as viable partners in the work of the community coalitions and other prevention initiatives. Illinois SADD is housed at Prevention First, a statewide nonprofit committed to building and supporting healthy drug-free communities through public education, professional training and effective tools for those working to prevent drug use and related issues such as violence, teen pregnancy, and academic failure.
