Join WSPN’s Jenny Shine and Annika Martins as they interview SADD leader Giovanni Sebastianelli.

In the second edition of WSPN Goes Clubbing, WSPN’s Jenny Shine and Annika Martins discuss the club SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions).

What is SADD?

“SADD is a club at the high school, which stands for Students Against Destructive Decisions, and we meet every other Wednesday. In the club, we primarily focus on helping students make healthier decisions especially surrounding things like drunk driving, driving high and driving sober, but we also talk about things under that umbrella, like mental health.”

How did this club begin?

“SADD was founded at Wayland High School because of a drunk driving accident that happened in which two Wayland hockey players were killed.”

Why should someone join the club?

“People should join the club because there’s no commitment that you need to make. You don’t need to show up to every single meeting. But obviously, you should try to come to every single one if you can. It’s more about educating yourself and being able to educate other people and help other people make those safe and healthy decisions that could potentially save somebody’s life.”

What are meetings like and how often are they?

“The meetings are every other Wednesday and are run by the six club leaders. Recently we’ve been having about 40 to 50 kids at each of our meetings. We make a slideshow in advance and then we just show that on the projector and talk through it. We’re trying to do activities during our meetings to get people involved like making posters for our fundraisers.”

What is one goal that you have for the club this year?

“One goal would probably be to keep spreading awareness and make SADD a really big presence not only at the high school, but also within the rest of the town and maybe even who other towns because of how important it is. We can save people’s lives.”
