SADD members campaign against underage drinking and drug use

Post-Chronicle (Hamden, CT) May 30, 2012

"Recently, members of Hamden High School’s Students Against Destructive Decisions Club have assisted the Hamden Youth Advisory Council in their “Positive Choices” Campaign to prevent underage drinking. HYAC encourages youth voice and youth participation and the efforts of the SADD group have been instrumental in conveying youth to youth messages about the dangers of underage drinking and drug use.
With support from HYAC and other agencies, SADD students have led 'Choice for Me, Drug Free' Fairs for 4th graders at nine Hamden elementary schools to educate students about underage drinking, smoking, drug use, peer-pressure, and self-esteem. Their presentations demonstrate resistance skills and promote 'Positive Choices' and healthy decisions, which are evident in their recently produced short film. The film is written, directed and performed by SADD members, to be viewed at the Fairs in the months ahead. Additionally, during the 'Choice for Me, Drug Free' interactive presentations for the older students, a lively and engaging puppet show is presented for second graders." Read More
