VIRTUAL TRAINING SERIES AVAILABLE
The 2020-2021 school year has proven that we can adapt and continue our work towards a healthier space for our teens. Our teens have moved forward with their education, needing service hours, engaging in clubs and programs to continue their individual and academic growth during this school year. Again, the PA DUI Association, PA SADD’s host agency and NJM Insurance Group have partnered to provide programs for clubs and creative outlets. NJM Insurance Group sponsored 12 Live virtual sessions this fall. Students who attend 6 of the 12 sessions and complete a short evaluation will be eligible for the “PA SADD Leadership” Certificate. Completing sessions will also count as volunteer service hours* for the President’s Volunteer Service Award through SADD National.
This program is extended to February 1, 2021. Please have your students engage and earn their “PA SADD Leadership” Certificate. Registered PA SADD Chapters have been provided an email with links to the training materials.
*If accepted at your school students can use their hours earned for school service hours!

On August 1, 2018 SADD launched our new SADD Portal! This is a game-changer for SADD Nation and a great resource to support our chapters, advisers, 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 $0 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.
THANK YOU! We are excited that you’ve joined our new registration system. Your next steps: Log in to the Portal and submit your students for membership. Once they are submitted, you will have access to even more resources.
