About the A3 Network
The Anti-Drug Abuse Advocacy (A3) Network is a volunteer network of individuals who identify with, support, and promote the anti-drug cause. The Network is jointly managed by NCADA and the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB). It consists of four pathways:
|A3 Adult Advocates||Anti-Drug Abuse Advocates (ADA) Programme||Dadah itu Haram (DIH) Campaign||Bothaiporulai Ethirthu Nirpom (BEN) Campaign|
|General track, 26 and up||Youth track, 17 - 25||Community-based advocacy||Community-based advocacy|
History and Mission
In 2016, NCADA had the aim of developing a network of advocates who identify with and support a shared goal of a Drug-Free Singapore. Advocates, who could generate community awareness and act as a third party voice for the drug-free cause.
What You’ll Do
An advocate's primary role is to speak out against the harms of drugs and promote a drug-free life in their personal circles -- whether as parents, friends, teachers, or colleagues. NCADA facilitates this by hosting periodic seminars and engagement sessions to develop our advocate's drug-related knowledge and advocacy capabilities. Where relevant and opportunities arise, advocates may also be invited to support NCADA in media campaigns and anti-drug events. Advocates are highly encouraged to kickstart ground-up projects (small-scale is ok!) within their communities or groups that can help spread the anti-drug message or support resilience against drugs.
