About the Career Services Program
SSDP has long held a unique space in the drug policy reform movement: The work that our members do on their campuses and in their states prepares them to be leaders in not only drug policy reform, but also in many intersecting movements. The list of SSDP alumni doing meaningful work in social justice, the liberty movement, direct service harm reduction, and other areas of policy reform is long and impressive. State-legal marijuana industries have now opened another door for post-graduation employment and many of the more visible leaders of that industry cut their teeth while founding SSDP and building their chapters. As they become influential leaders, SSDP alumni ensure the cannabis industry remains deeply connected to its advocacy roots and maintains the values of responsibility, transparency, and social entrepreneurship.
SSDP's Career Services program seeks to increase meaningful services to students and facilitate students' increased engagement in policy reform -- and the legal marijuana industry as one vector supporting that reform -- through improved preparation for and access to post-graduation employment opportunities.
