Friday Night Live

strikeback fgFriday Night Live builds partnerships for positive and healthy youth development which engage youth as active leaders and resources in their communities. The California Friday Night Live (FNL) Program was developed in 1984 in Sacramento by the State Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs (ADP) and the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS). It began as a pilot program dedicated to reducing the number of deaths and injuries caused by teen motorists driving under the influence of alcohol and other drugs. During the first years of the program the youth involved were organized into high school-based student action groups, later renamed FNL Chapters. The success rate was so great that in 1988, the California State Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs established a statewide office to facilitate the expansion of the program to youth throughout California. By 1990, the number of counties with FNL had tripled and the main focus of the program began to shift from one of preventing drinking and driving among teens to one of promoting healthy lifestyles free of alcohol, tobacco, or other substance abuse among youth.

FNL has been in Shasta County since 1989, and currently has 3 on-campus high school chapters and one large county-wide get together that meets every Tuesday night, and is more than 50 members strong. On-campus chapters are youth-led by a youth Campus Outreach Partner who conducts meetings, leads organizing school events and assists in coordinating county-wide activities.
