The Anti-Drug Abuse Advocacy Network (A3 Network) is jointly administered by National Council Against Drug Abuse (NCADA) and Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB). It aims to develop a network of active individuals who identify with, support, and promote the anti-drug cause. They would focus on becoming a third party voice for NCADA-related activities, generating community awareness and involvement.
The network has two categories – youth advocates and adult advocates.
As a youth advocate
Join us in the anti-drug cause and influence youths to lead a drug-free life. You'll get to organise your own anti-drug initiatives, and have the opportunity to be involved at international forums, to promote a drug-free world.
You will be trained on Singapore's anti-drug policies. Through your advocacy, you will generate greater community awareness and involvement to support Singapore’s zero tolerance approach to drugs.
As an adult advocate
As an adult A3 advocate, you could contribute to the cause by disseminating anti-drug abuse messages within your circle of influence. Adult advocates may also serve as docents for anti-drug abuse events.

You will conceptualise and execute anti-drug projects, such as roadshows and media campaigns.
You may also get the chance to gain exposure by attending international anti-drug forums as a youth representative.
For adult advocates
Engagement and networking sessions will be organised periodically to keep you abreast of the latest trends and anti-drug initiatives.
For youth advocates
You will undergo a half-day developmental programme to be equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge.
The programme includes:
An update on Singapore’s overall Drug Control approach
A tour of CNB Heritage Gallery
A visit to one of the enforcement units for a showcase of the urine testing methods
A sharing session by an ex-abuser
As a Home Team volunteer, you will be trained and supervised, working in partnership with regular officers in the execution of their duties.

Joining CDAU has allowed me to equip myself with specialized knowledge and skills, as well as the opportunity to contribute back to my community.
I take pride in working with the regular officers, PNSFs, PNSmen and civilian staff to maintain law and order, and to keep Singapore safe. I also enjoy interacting with members of the public during our patrols and roadshows. I feel I am part of a larger family and this keeps inspiring me to do my best.
There's a place for everyone and as a volunteer, we can help reintegrate ex-offenders back into society by spreading messages of second chances.
