The Florida Students Against Destructive Decisions (FL SADD) program is coordinated by the State Coordinator, funded by a grant from the Florida Department of Transportation, and housed at Florida Public Safety Institute, a campus of Tallahassee Community College. This office provides statewide coordination and assistance to Florida's 200+ SADD chapters and works in cooperation with many state agencies, local school districts, law enforcement offices, and other state and community-based organizations. The collaboration and cooperation between the state and community-based organizations enhance the "Triangle of Caring" which is comprised of school, home, and community. FL SADD is dedicated to educating students, parents, and others in the community concerning the problems of underage drinking, impaired driving, seatbelt usage, driver training, speeding, and red light running. The FL SADD emphasizes traffic safety because traffic crashes are the #1 cause of death for teenagers in America. The purpose of FL SADD is to assist and encourage middle school and high school students to live safe, healthy, and substance-free lifestyles by creating chapters in their schools that support and promote positive decision-making. SADD promotes a "No-Use" message - no alcohol, tobacco, or illegal substances - through positive peer pressure, support, and activism.

SADD was founded on the simple philosophy that young people, empowered to help each other, are the most effective force in prevention. For more than a quarter-century, SADD has been recognized as a national leader in alcohol and drug education and prevention. In every community, the world of teenagers becomes more and more complex. Substance abuse, violence, suicide, negative influences on body image, and glorification of lowered value standards are threats to teens' well-being. With its expansion of focus to include destructive decisions outside of solely drinking and driving, SADD has become the premier youth-based education and prevention organization in America and maintains the ability to play a leading role in effective, evidence-based prevention programming.

Greetings, Thespians! 

Are you up for more theatre? Would you be interested in directing a One-Act? Or playing in one? Maybe tech'ing??

As thespians, you have a great opportunity to affect your audience. You do this each time you step onto the stage! Theatre for Dramatic Effect is a program that focuses on raising awareness and promoting safe and heathy decisions for your peers and adults alike! 

What does this mean? Well, CO SADD would help you to select a show from a pre-selected set of One-Act scripts and would pay for the licensing two performances of the show you choose. You would have up to two months to put together your production for presentation. Depending on COVID restrictions, we will look at a "Radio Play" presentation. After COVID restrictions are lifted, your production may be taken to area groups/schools for presentations and actor talk-backs.

Another option would be for a student (or troupe) to write their own One Act script for production. Original work would address difficult issues facing young people - such as mental health, social/emotional health, physical or even financial health. Traffic Safety (impaired driving) is of particular interest!
