Friday Night Live/Club Live:
Located at: Mariposa County High School, Woodland Elementary School, Mariposa Elementary School, Lake Don Pedro Elementary School, Greeley Hill Elementary School
Friday Night Live builds partnerships for positive and healthy youth development which engage youth as active leaders and resources in their communities.
FNL is focused on preventing community issues such as underage drinking, drinking and driving, social hosting and more. The program also focuses on providing youth with the skills and resources they need to be successful citizens in their communities.
Due to the overwhelming success of Friday Night Live, a middle/junior high school component was developed called Club Live.
The primary focus of both programs is to form youth/adult partnerships with young people, providing programs rich in opportunities and support, so young people will be less likely to engage in problem behaviors, more likely to achieve in school, and more likely to attend higher education or secure a full-time job.Visit the State Friday Night Live Site here: http://fridaynightlive.org/
