The High School Students Against Destructive Destructions (SADD) Club hosted a districtwide "Neighbor to Neighbor" conference that engaged students in a unique initiative. Ten students from grades five through eight were invited to participate in a series of workshops and activities to address current issues that young people face today. The goal of the daylong program was to create an awareness of these challenges and develop unified plans of action.    

Workshops included bullying and its effects, strategies to overcome bullying, and the sharing of stories with those who have experienced bullying. In one workshop, groups expressed themselves by creating a series of skits, which they presented on a variety of topics including texting, social acceptance and peer relationships. The day culminated with each group creating a poster depicting what they had learned. Each piece will be displayed in the students’ respective schools for their peers to view, along with a certificate of participation.
