Friday Night Live

December 27, 2002

Friday Night Live builds partnerships for positive and healthy youth development and engages youth as active leaders and resources in their communities. This statewide network of programs engage young participants in examining the social and environmental messages that support substance use and abuse, and developing policy solutions to community issues. Youth also learn about the links between substance abuse and other community concerns. Armed with knowledge and new skills, youth organize and implement projects designed to have a sustained community impact. Projects and activities are youth-driven and grounded in a belief in young people's capacity to contribute.
