Anti-Drug Ambassador

INTRODUCTION

1. The SANA Badge Scheme, which started in 1977, impacts more than 5,000 youths a year. This programme is a half-day motivational workshop for secondary school students from the uniformed groups. The workshop gives them information on illegal drugs, the harmful consequences of drug abuse and how to lead healthy lifestyles without relying on substances. The course ends with an online assessment. Upon completion, they each receive a customised SANA Badge.

2. In 2016, SANA has revamped the course, in order to engage our youths with the community.  The badge name in general is now known as SANA Ambassador.  Hence, St John Brigade will now rename its badge as "Anti-Drug Ambassador".  We hope through the renaming of this badge, it gives an opportunity for our cadets to be advocates to spread the importance of staying drug-free.
