Cleveland SADD (same acronym, new name: Student Advocates for Diversity and Discovery) is a service club open to students in grades 7-12. Past activities have included Baby-Think-It-Over, a program developed to help discourage teen pregnancy; Lights on for Life and Chain of Life, both developed to encourage seat belt use and attentive driving; Just Yell Fire, a program developed to teach basic self-defense techniques. SADD also works with the American Red Cross to coordinate 2-3 blood drives each year, earning scholarship money for the club. One other exciting activity is the Mock Crash, put on every 2-3 years and performed by SADD and Drama Club students. It is created with coordination with local law enforcement including police, state patrol, fire and rescue, and Mayo One to discourage driving under the influence or distracted and to encourage good choices, especially around prom and graduation time. Due to CoVid 19 restrictions, the club has not been meeting since spring of 2020.
