Don’t miss this great opportunity! Click here to apply today! The goal of the Massachusetts SADD Mini-Grant Program is to raise awareness about youth access to alcohol, underage drinking and impaired driving to create sustainable youth and adult behavior change to reduce the risks associated with these issues.

MA SADD is now on Facebook!
MA SADD has a Facebook page that is a great source for news, information, and the ability to hear from others.

You can also find event information, photos from previous events, and more. Please ask your SADD chapter students to “like” the page and share it with their friends.
You can view the page by clicking here or typing in "Massachusetts SADD" in the search box in Facebook.
