What is Friday Night Live (FNL)?
Friday Night Live builds partnerships for positive and healthy youth development which engage youth as active leaders and resources in their communities.
FNL is a youth-adult partnership that supports a lifestyle free of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. It can be a chapter on your school campus, or in community based organizations and extends into a county youth council.
Developed in 1984 by the State Office of Traffic Safety and the Department of Alcohol and Drug programs, FNL was piloted in Sacramento, Contra Costa and Riverside counties. It was created to address alcohol related crashes among youth and has evolved to include many more issues which youth face.
- Young people will experience a safe environment.

- Young people will have opportunities for leadership and advocacy.
- Youth will have opportunities to engage in meaningful skill building activities that are designed to capture their interest and participation.
