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.

To learn more about current Youth Program events and youth community resources, visit our Bulletin Board and our Resources Page.

Mental Health PSA

Check out our Milpitas High School chapter’s PSA on mental health and substance use. Despite most students saying they struggle with their mental health, the majority do not ask for help. Prevent unhealthy habits. Reach out when your friends are in doubt!

Further mental health resources can be found on @milpitashigh.fnl’s Instagram page.
