Why SADD does what it does - hover here WHY SADD exists to empower young people to prevent road trauma. SADD is a student led, peer to peer programme that gives youth a voice to effect and inspire safe road user behaviours. SADD supports and provides a platform for young people to amplify safe road user messages to their communities, becoming youth agencies for change.
What SADD does - hover here WHAT Our point of difference is in offering youth-centred leadership development and behaviour changing opportunities within a road safety context. An emphasis is on good decision making and societal contribution. SADD offers opportunities for students to work collaboratively and build relationships with road safety partners and community groups to develop solutions to achieve our collective goals of reducing harm on our roads and improved wellbeing outcomes for young people.
How SADD does what it does - hover here HOW New Zealand youth form SADD committees in Schools. Students use problem solving processes to develop innovative, relevant and meaningful activities to support young people to develop safer, lifelong road user behaviours. The SADD team provide guidance and support using best practice, evidence based, road safety education approaches to influence their peers and wider community to positively promote safe road user behaviours. SADD is supported by teachers, other community volunteers and road safety partners to run activities and events promoting our six principles of safe road use. We encourage whole of community approaches to reduce the incidence and severity of harm caused by road trauma.
