Santa Clara County Friday Night Live

Friday Night Live

Santa Clara County Friday Night Live is part of a statewide Youth Development program operating in 52 counties throughout California.  Friday Night Live builds partnerships for positive and healthy youth development which engage youth as active leaders and resources in their communities. We provide our program participants with a safe environment, opportunities for community engagement, opportunities for leadership and advocacy, opportunities to build caring and meaningful relationships with peers and adults, and opportunities to engage in interesting and relevant skill development opportunities.
