Friday Night Live builds partnerships for positive and healthy youth development
which engage youth as active leaders and resources in their communities.


The California Youth Council (CYC) is a statewide group of young people committed to raising awareness on youth issues. Young people are competent and capable citizens who have an interest in their community. High school and college age youth from all parts of California, with different opinions and experiences make up the CYC. The common thread that holds this diverse group together is all are committed to making positive change happen in their communities. As a CYC member, young people have opportunities to engage in statewide advocacy efforts, build next-level skills, develop and deliver relevant training to peers and adults throughout the state, and build meaningful relationships with youth and adults from across California. Youth development is not only discussed in CYC meetings, it is practiced!
